Burned Westport church plans Christmas feast
One month after a fire destroyed part of the Westport Saugatuck Congregational Church, volunteers are putting the final touches on this year's Christmas feast.
The fire broke out in the back of the building on Nov. 20.
The damage forced church leaders to move the Thanksgiving feast to the Christ and Holy Trinity Church, down the street.
This year's Christmas dinner is going to be at the same place.
Organizers are planning to feed about 300 less fortunate people.
They are expecting 100 volunteers, more than they have ever had.
The feast, which will be held on Christmas Day, will run from 11:30 a.m. ? 1 p.m.
Doors will open at 10:30 a.m.
