U.S. NAVY VETERAN AND NORTH CONWAY’S AMERICAN LEGION POST 95 MEMBER JOHN PANDORA IS THE CHEF-IN-CHARGE AGAIN WEDNESDAY FOR HIS 30TH YEAR ORGANIZING AND SERVING A FREE CHRISTMAS DINNER TO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC.

PANDORA – REFERRED TO AS A “TIN CAN SAILOR” BECAUSE OF HIS SERVICE ON DESTROYERS, SAYS DOORS WILL OPEN WEDNESDAY AT NOON AT THE CONWAY VILLAGE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH – THE LITTLE BROWN CHURCH AT 132 MAIN ST. – AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WILL BE WELCOMED AS THEY ARE EVERY YEAR TO ENJOY ANOTHER TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS FEAST SPONSORED BY POST 95.

PANDORA EMPHASIZES THAT EVERYONE IS WELCOME.

THE TURKEYS FOR THE DINNER COME FROM VAUGHAN COMMUNITY SERVICE IN NORTH CONWAY – OTHER FOOD IS DONATED BY LOCAL SUPERMARKETS AND BAKERIES.

SEVERAL HUNDRED PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED. CHRISTMAS MEALS WILL ALSO BE DELIVERED TO SHUT-INS AND OTHERS WHO CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE CHURCH.

POST ADJUTANT DAVE HASKELL WILL PRESENT PANDORA WITH A SPECIAL APRON HONORING HIM FOR HIS THREE DECADES OF UNSELFISH SERVICE TO OTHERS.
