On an unseasonably warm afternoon students from West Rehoboth Youth Program distributed meals to older and homebound recipients of the special holiday dinner Dec. 21. About 15 adult volunteers gathered before dawn and 25 youth, with help from program Director Diaz Bonville, served more than 200 meals to residents. Since 2008 this program has served residents turkey meals with all the fixings for Christmas.
