Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley, in partnership with Family of Woodstock, will be holding a 1st Annual Christmas Feast, free of charge, on a first-come, first-served basis, for all who would not otherwise be able to enjoy a Christmas feast.
This festive food and music event will take place on Christmas Day, December 25, from 12pm to 3pm, in the congregation’s social hall (decorated by the religious school children). We will be providing a full meal consisting of entrees (turkey, smoked salmon, brisket, rice and beans), sides (yams, corn, green beans, sweet pumpkin, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, apple sauce, carmelized onions & more), desserts (cookies, pies, and more), soft drinks (apple cider, apple juice, cocoa, coffee and tea). The meal will be buffet style, all served by volunteers, and there will be open seating for 141 guests at a time. Many local Hudson Valley businesses are helping to make this possible.
Attendees will also enjoy live performances from some of the best bands in the Hudson Valley (band schedule also attached):
12pm – 1pm: Cantor Bob and the HV Jubilee (Americana classics with a groove),
1pm – 2pm: The Gold Hope Duo (rockabilly)
2pm – 3pm: Saints of Swing feat. Miss Renee Bailey (swing)
