Moreland Community Historical Society will be holding the annual Moreland Community Christmas Dinner Saturday at the Moreland Mill.
The event will start at 6:30 p.m. The society “will provide meat, drinks, and paper products,” said Josh Evans, president. “We ask that you bring your favorite side dish to share with those attending,” he added.
“The Moreland Community Singers will be helping us get in the Christmas spirit by entertaining us with Christmas music. Santa Claus will make an appearance and will have small gift for each little one,” Evans said.
“We are excited this year to have a live nativity scene following our dinner this year,” he said.
Evans said volunteers are also needed to help decorate the mill on Dec. 1 at 9 a.m.
During the dinner, orders will be taken for the new MCHS cookbook, “Moreland Meals and Memories.” The cookbook is at the printers and will be ready for Christmas.

The book has almost 400 recipes, gathered from cooks in Moreland and friends of the community and society. Evans, who is also the town’s mayor, wrote an introduction to the book.

“Moreland Meals and Memories” will also feature a short history of Moreland by local writer Winston Skinner, who also wrote vignettes about various facets of Moreland history for the section dividers.

Books purchased in advance – with a deadline of Dec. 7 – will be $15 each. Mailing is available for an additional $2. Orders may be sent to MCHS, P.O. Box 128, Moreland, GA 30259.

After Dec. 7, books will be $18 each. People who purchase via pre-orders will be able to pick up their books on Dec. 19 from 9 a.m.-noon at the Moreland Mill. Skinner will be available to autograph books from 10:30-noon that day.

People who pre-order but cannot pick up books on Dec. 19 should include a phone number and/or email so arrangements can be made to pick up books.
