It was announced on November 17 that the JAMS Family will be unable to host the annual Christmas Dinner this year, due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
“It is our desire to ensure that everyone stays safe over the Christmas holidays and to follow the guidelines of the Public Health Department,” said Sandy Johnson, one of the organizers of the event.
“Because a large number of our attendees meet the criteria for 'at risk' individuals we feel it is safer if they stay home and take care of themselves. We hope that they might have at least another person or couple in their 'bubble' to spend the day with. “
“Initially we had intended to deliver our meal to the regular attendees and anyone else that requested it, but in looking at this action we realized it does not meet the mandate of the JAMS Family dinner at all.”
“It is our desire to ensure that no one spends Christmas alone, so delivering a meal does not meet this need, it simply makes us a take-out restaurant.
“It is our family’s sincere hope that everyone stay safe this year and we can all plan to meet again in 2021.”
