More than 300 people enjoyed Christmas lunch prepared are St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on Sunday.

Now called Jo’s Community Dinners in honor of its founder Josephine Mosdell, who died earlier this year, the event drew one of its largest Christmas crowds ever.

“We were prepared for that number,” organizer Jan Morris said. “I’d say it was a huge success.”

Most of the meals were delivered, but a number of people enjoyed “dining in” at the church’s parish hall.

The event is hosted by St. Mary’s, but organizers rely on help from civic clubs, other churches and individuals from the community.

“We wouldn’t be able to do it without people’s help,” she said.

The church organizes a similar meal on Thanksgiving.
