434 gather for free Thanksgiving dinner
The annual free Thanksgiving dinner, held at Minnewaska Area High School, went off without a hitch on Nov. 26 thanks to the many volunteers who make the dinner possible. According to one of the dinner’s organizers, Audrey Erickson, meals served for the day topped out at 434. Of those, 252 were served at the school and 182 were delivered to homes throughout the community.
Pictured, volunteers were geared up and ready to dish up meals along the school’s cafeteria serving line. Community members had a chance to enjoy good food and good company. Below, volunteers offered rides from the parking lot to the door, making it easy for community members to get inside and out of the cold.
