Naperville senior citizens and those in need who may find themselves alone for Christmas this year are invited to the 34th annual Christmas luncheon at 11:30AM on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, hosted by the Naperville Y and the Naperville Park District.

The Chicago Marriott Naperville, located at 1801 N. Naper Blvd., will host the luncheon. Last year, more than 150 attended, enjoying the company of others and a festive meal, served by community volunteers and made possible by generous donors.

“The Christmas luncheon is one of our favorite traditions,” said Naperville YMCAs Executive Director R. J. Bartels. “It’s heart-warming to see how much our guests and our volunteers appreciate this gathering.”

This year is the eighth year of the Park District’s involvement with the event.

“We are happy to be able to partner with the Y to host a great community event,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury.

Interested seniors and families in need must make reservations by Dec. 11 by calling Polly Rhodes at (630) 527-6599 and leaving a message with guests’ names and the total number in their party.
