After the band marches, they gather in the Hogan Room for a dinner provided by several area restaurants. The meal this year was pork & chicken BBQ, slaw, beans, salad, pizza and desserts. Our parishioners serve the meal, fix to-go boxes (which the college students greatly appreciate) and send them back to Winston tired, but full.
The band brings an energy and a warmth to St. James that we eagerly anticipate each December. We are grateful for the opportunity to feed these gifted students.
