Prosser couple plans free Christmas meal

PROSSER -- With Thanksgiving's free communitywide dinner behind them, Jess and Susanne Ayala of Prosser's Tuscany Italian Bistro are set to do it again with a free holiday dinner at the Prosser Senior Center from 2 to 5 p.m. Christmas Day.

The center will open its doors to people of all ages who would like to savor a full ham and turkey dinner.

The Ayalas decided at Thanksgiving to give back to the community that has supported them in their first year of business. The Christmas dinner is offered in the same spirit of gratitude, with help from volunteer servers.

"We are simply looking to make sure that everyone in the region has a nice Christmas dinner and someone to share it with," Jess Ayala said.

Tuscany, at the corner of Sixth Street and Bennett Avenue in downtown Prosser, is open 4 to 9 p.m. daily. Information: 509-786-7600 or EatTuscany@gmail.com.
