PHOTOS: Pahrump Community Christmas Dinner

Hundreds convened in Pahrump on Saturday to celebrate Christmas with slabs of ham, piles of sweet potatoes, loads of veggies, cranberries, plenty of rolls and desserts.

The Pahrump Holiday Task Force hosted its annual Community Christmas Dinner at the NyE Communities Coalition Activities Center, and it took an army of volunteers to make it happen, organizer Linda Wright told the Pahrump Valley Times.

From decorating to greeting, to serving to cleaning up after the event, volunteers did a run-through on Friday night, to ensure Saturday’s gathering operated smoothly.

In addition to the Christmas meal, local Elvis impersonator Johnny V provided musical entertainment. Santa Claus even stopped by to chat with the children.

In case you missed it, John Clausen crashed the party and snapped these photos for the Pahrump Valley Times.
