"No One Should Be Alone At Christmas" is the slogan that began the annual Christmas Fellowship Dinner that is held every year on Christmas Day at the Troy/Montgomery Senior Center.  A great dinner of turkey, dressing and all the "fixings" is served to everyone attending.  This dinner is for anyone who is alone or lonely on Christmas Day. Thanks to the generous donations by area businesses for the food, treat bags that are given to all attendees and the many door prizes that are given out to add to the fun!
