A Grand Feast It Was!
22nd Annual Community Holiday Dinner
What a wonderful community – and a wonderful holiday event! The CHD Committee reports that 1,228 of you shared in the free Community Holiday Dinner – turkey with all the trimmings – last Sunday at the Holiday Inn. (The chef reports that he was cooking turkeys the whole week before, a total of 60 turkeys for the event!)
Not only did you attend, but you gave all kinds of support as well. There were over 200 volunteers – many of which just called the Committee as individuals and offered to help in some way. The Chamber Ambassadors served up the food – that’s the Ambassador line-up pictured above, just before the 4:00 start. Santa and Mrs. Claus reported that they had a chance to hear the want lists from over 300 kids (the kids each received a gift from Santa as well). And the financial contributions were also overwhelming – over $9,500, which may be an all-time high. Thank you, Sheridan!
The Community Holiday Dinner Committee, chaired by Erin DeFries, is a community committee of volunteers, including the Sheridan County Chamber and many of its members.
