Just like last year, the picturesque Scarritt-Bennett Center invites their neighbors to enjoy holiday luncheons at the historic Susie Gray Dining Hall on their campus on 19th Avenue South. They are serving buffet-style luncheons complete with all the holiday trimmings prepared by executive chef Jennifer Threadgill, and offering free Christmas concerts in beautiful Wightman Chapel after most of the meals, from 1 to 1:30 p.m. You can also shop in the Front Porch gift shop, and enjoy the sights of the famous grounds decorated for the season with festive wreathes, bows, and twinkling trees for a complete holiday experience.

Luncheon dates for 2011 are Nov. 29, 30 & Dec. 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., but some of the dates have already sold out so plan ahead now!
