Representative Smith Serves the Public … Dinner
December 19, 2013 — By Sarah Holst
While most Americans spend December 25 with family and friends, a group of local volunteers choose to spend that time giving back to the community.
The annual Silver Spirit of Christmas Dinner will be held Christmas day Ivy Tech Community College in Gary.
State Representative Vernon Smith will be among the volunteers feeding the community and he visited Lakeshore News to talk about the event.
The dinner runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at the college at 1440 E. 35th Avenue in Gary. The free event is open to the public, and participants will receive a gift.
