With the closing of the El Dorado Honor Camp North Unit, Christmas with Friends will be changing a bit this year.

Inmate involvement is still contributing to the vitality of El Dorado’s community and approximately 35 inmates commute from the Winfield Facility to El Dorado to handle maintenance and other responsibilities.

The event will now be featured as a luncheon and will be held Dec. 2 at the Civic Center, 201 E. Central.

The Red Devils will be providing hamburgers, baked beans, potato salad and dessert will be brought in.

Tickets for Christmas with Friends can be obtained at the Chamber of Commerce, 201 E. Central, and individual meal prices are $7.50.

A $75 donation will come with the title “Santa’s Helper” and helpers will receive three complimentary tickets. Nov. 26 is the deadline for helpers.

Contact the Chamber of Commerce at 321-3150.
