"We started at a quarter of 11, and it's been solid ever since. We always get good feedback from the people," Rock said.
Both Richard and Shirley Barnes described the dinner as "great."
"If you want a good meal, come to Pond Bank," Richard Barnes said.
The Chambersburg, Pa., couple attends the event annually and brought their 5-year-old grandson, Parker.
"He likes the mashed potatoes and pork, but not the sauerkraut," Richard Barnes said.
The best part of the meal was the applesauce, according to Parker. He also said he liked the salt and pepper shakers.
"It's all good," Betty Rowe said.
"The chocolate cake with peanut butter icing is excellent," Glenn Rowe said.
When the Rowes, of Fayetteville, Pa., learned that many of their family members had New Year's Day plans, they decided to go to the dinner in Pond Bank for the first time.
"We've been to other things they have, like the strawberry fest and peach fest. ... We like to support the local community," Betty Rowe said.
Lee and Sonja Yoder, of Fayetteville, were at the holiday dinner for the first time, although they, too, had been to other events in Pond Bank.
"It's delicious, very, very good," Sonja Yoder said.
Rock said the meal is prepared in phases, with the pork being cooked and frozen as the first step. Monday found "a lot of good friends" peeling potatoes, he said.
