Seeing smiles on people's faces after they receive a free lunch is like receiving a Christmas gift to the brothers of Omega Psi Phi.
Since 1973, brothers of the national service fraternity have reserved a day each Christmas season to serve lunch to the community - especially seniors and public workers.
That tradition continued Friday when the local chapter served a hot lunch at the A.R. Rucker Middle School cafeteria.
Visitors enjoyed turkey and dressing, rice and gravy, green beans, corn, yams, cranberry sauce and rolls. Homemade desserts were plentiful.
