Letter to the Editor: Community Thanksgiving Dinner Set Record

The community Thanksgiving dinner held at the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church provided meals for 375 individuals – a new record. This year, 185 people dined at the church, and 190 home deliveries and carry-outs were prepared.

This long-standing event has been successful largely because of the tremendous community support it receives. We thank the 90-plus volunteers who worked so hard throughout the week to organize, prepare, cook, bake, serve, deliver and clean up. Many volunteers are from our church, but many others are from the wider community. An effort of this magnitude requires teamwork, and we continue to be blessed by many willing workers.

We offer a special note of thanks to our anonymous donors and to the area businesses and organizations that supported our community meal this year: Bank of Luxemburg, Forbes Funeral Home, Hatco Team, Huehns Funeral Home, Jim Olson Motors, Maas Floral and Greenhouse, Nicolet Bank, North Shore Bank, Pick ’n Save, Roder Farms, Sully’s Produce, Tadych’s Econofoods, Tanum Forest Lutheran Church and Walmart.
