Letter to the Editor: Thanksgiving

Dear Editor,

Once again, the Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner was able to provide a delicious hot meal to an estimated 60 people, an increase from the 2016 dinner.

Twenty-six dinners were delivered to those who live at the Jaconetti Center, whose names were provided by the Center staff. Meals on Wheels provided 16 names of individuals that they routinely provide meals for. And seven who requested that a meal be delivered to those considered by the Community workers would benefit from a Holiday Meal.
A total of 109 meals were served by the volunteers, who graciously gave of their time, talents and donations.

Without the support of the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic, Trinity Methodist, Colusa Assembly of God, St. Stephen’s Episcopal and the First Presbyterian churches in the community, others of the community who brought cooked turkeys or turkeys to be cooked, ham, Rocco’s, Market Street Grill, Selover’s, Sankey Family, Sacramento River Fire Department Social for donating and cooking hams and turkeys. Thanks to Barbara O’Connell, who donated persimmons and pomegranates to be shared with those who enjoyed the dinner. The deserts that were donated filled a serving table, but little was left afterwards.

Fourteen turkeys were provided and cooked, as well as six hams, carved by a six-person team. The hostess/greeter, kitchen staff, serving line preparation, refreshment, serving line, desert, pots and pan washing was a team effort by many who rotated as the day continued.

We want to thank all who contributed the meat, deserts and other donations, as well as many who came to work at whatever task needed to be done, including the cleanup detail.

A special thank you to those who provided music during the meal.

If we failed to mention anyone or group, please excuse us, for we certainly appreciated all those involved. We are looking forward to hopefully providing this opportunity to our community in 2018.

Thank You,
Robin Rauch, Event Coordinator
Len Bolen, Support Coordinator
