Ross Lucas, Community Thanksgiving lead dinner coordinator, said, “We served over 875 dinners, and we had great volunteers and donations. We had good food and good company.” Becky Acar, Community Thanksgiving lead food organizer, said, “I would like to say a huge thank you to those who donated sparkling juice. potatoes, desserts, green bean casserole and turkeys. A total of 60 turkeys were cooked for the event, which hopes to return to in-person dining next year, with additional volunteers.
