An Alton Church is putting the finishing touches on preparations for its annual free Christmas Dinner.  The St. John Missionary Baptist Church expects to feed about 200 people on Christmas Day.  Dinner, featuring turkey and ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing and a variety of desserts, will be served from 11am-2pm at the church.  It's located at 427 Market Street, and you don't need to RSVP to attend.

If you are going to be alone at Christmas, if spending Christmas at home is difficult for some, following a bereavement for example, if you want to do something different, or want the share the true meaning of Christmas with other, you are welcome to come.
