Hundreds enjoy Thanksgiving Community Meal

Community-Thanksgiving-DinnerVolunteers for the Thanksgiving Community Meal served hundreds of residents  Thanksgiving Day at the Little Falls Community High School commons. Diners ranged from those would have otherwise been alone for Thanksgiving, to those who had traveled to visit grandmas and grandpas or other family and wanted to volunteer, to community members who wanted to socialize. From 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., the line was constant and long said Jeff Jelinski, who has greeted guests at the meal for nearly 20 years at the meal. He said people came from every walk of life and all of them had a smile. Tim Sumner, one of the organizations of the event, said he received so many offers for help, he had to turn away 60 volunteers.
