Santa will already be back at the North Pole, but a few of his elves will stick around Dawsonville Friday to serve Christmas dinners to those in need. The dining room at Dawsonville Tavern will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Christmas Day as volunteers gather to "pay it forward" this holiday season. The calling to give back comes from a higher place, said Scotty Seay, who organized the free Christmas for the first time five years ago at the same location, although it was a different restaurant at that time.
