BOYERTOWN, Pa. -

All the traditional Christmas goodies were on the menu today in Boyertown.

Everyone was welcome for a Christmas meal at Saint John's Evangelical Church.


This is the 12th year the church has been providing the meal.


Organizers say the tradition started so everyone in the community would have somewhere to go on Christmas.

One of the organizers, Noelle Dierolf, said, "A lot of the people that come have nowhere else to go, they don't have family, and some of them just come out to enjoy the day with fellow brothers and sisters."

Organizers say they served about 120 meals today at the church.

They also delivered food to people who couldn't make it out.
