The First United Methodist Church, 615 Broadway in Baraboo, will host the 14th annual free Baraboo Area Community Christmas Dinner on Monday, December 25 at 12:00 noon. All are welcome.
The Baraboo Area Community Christmas Dinner is the work of numerous churches, charitable groups and individual volunteers. The event draws an average of 250 guests of all ages, both individuals and entire extended families.
