Christmas dinner draws community together

This is the second year the hall has hosted the event. The weather and turnout were great.

The 2018 Free Community Christmas Dinner in Alamosa enjoyed a great turnout and weather, with hundreds of area residents enjoying a turkey and trimmings meal together on Tuesday.
