The Christmas spirit is alive and well in Farmersville as residents join together to share a free Family Feast this week.

The feast will be provided at the Farmersville Masonic Lodge located at 817 Water St. from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20.

The free food event is open to anyone including those who need a hot meal, want a chance to visit with each other or just need a home cooked meal.

The menu will include ham, chicken and dressing, green bean casserole, corn, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, gravy, rolls, desserts, tea, coffee and lemonade.

There will also be free gifts for children while they last.

“I’ve always been passionate about helping others so the thought of serving families a Christmas feast seemed like a natural thing for me to do. And to watch the children’s eyes light up as they choose their Christmas gifts will by far be the shining star on top of my own Christmas tree,” Farmersville resident Gwen Snyder said. Gwen, along with her husband Mike and daughter Savannah, helped to organize the event.

The food is being provided through donations including the Masonic Lodge, the Eastern Star, The Brownie Cottage, Brookshire’s, Encore Wire, The Stable, Mike Schikora and the Snyders.

“The Brownie Cottage has given me use of their kitchen to cook in and they will be helping,” Snyder said.

Those in need of a ride are encouraged to call Mike Snyder at 214-668-4225.
