Just as they have for more than three decades, members of Clark Street Christian Church will help provide Christmas dinner to the community Wednesday.

The church has provided free dinners to those who need them every year since 1982.

According to a 2006  Herald-Banner article written by Carol Ferguson, the tradition began when Ernestine Katie Williams had a vision of providing a free Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner to the elderly, the sick and shut-ins who would not have family to visit and would not receive Meals on Wheels that day.
