It was a very Merry Christmas at the American Legion Hall in Alamosa on Tuesday. Many gathered to share the 22nd Annual Free Community Christmas Dinner. Those who could not make it received a meal in their homes. Darla and her fellow kitchen crew members serve up dinner plates with all the fixings. Well over 1,000 meals were served. Lorraine Hines, left, and her daughter, Liz Chambers, right, both of Alamosa, made sure nine-year-old Peppy visited Santa. Johnathan Ramirez, 7, and his brother Joshua, 4, look great in new matching sweatshirts. Leovardo Gaspar, 5, can't believe he won a new bike on Christmas. A number of bikes were raffled off to Valley youngsters.
