This is the 11th year the Frisbie Senior Center has hosted Christmas dinner for local seniors. The meal offers fellowship and friendship to people who may not have family in the area.

"It means everything," said Des Plaines City Clerk Gloria Ludwig as she served plates of food with a Santa hat jauntily perched on her head.

"We are serving the community, people in need that don't have anywhere else to go. They are able to enjoy fellowship as well as nourishment on this special occasion."
