The Dotson Park Board of Directors hosted its annual community Christmas dinner on Dec. 14 at First United Methodist Church. Local government officials and community members came to enjoy a festive meal.

Children got to meet Santa Claus and get their picture taken with him. Dotson Park Board Chair Geneva Malone said the event had a great turnout.

"The attendance was up from last year," Malone said. "Everyone was able to eat a good meal and enjoy each other's company."
