In its fifth year, the community dinner at the Grappone Conference Center served 370 plates of warm holiday meals. More than 100 volunteers, including Courtyard Mariott staff, made it happen, walking around chatting up people and manning the food line when needed. “People come here and we try and treat them like the President of the United States,” said Steve Duprey, whose company was one of the sponsors of the event.
