(Neb)-Chadron Thanksgiving Dinner Serves About 160
CHADRON - The resumption of Chadron's Community Thanksgiving Dinner at the Assumption Arena after a year's hiatus was a success.
Pastor Jason Corbit of C3, the Chadron Community Church, says 87 meals were delivered and about 75 served on-site when volunteers are included.
C3 took over this year with what Pastor Corbit says was a lot of transitional help from St Patrick's Catholic Church, especially long-time Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner co-coordinator Linda Yeradi.
He's not sure if his congregation will choose to take on the dinner again next year, but says that's the way many seem to be leaning. He'd also like to see other Chadron churches join them to make it even more of a community event.
The only commercial dining establishment in Chadron offering a Thanksgiving Dinner was The Ridge, which offered a $6 all-you-can-eat meal from 11-4:00. Owner Ron Moore says they may have served more carry-outs than dine-ins, and that they ran out of food around 2:30.
The largest community Thanksgiving meal in the Panhandle is Scottsbluff's Thanksgiving in the Valley, which celebrated its 35th anniversary yesterday at the Guadalupe Center.
Organizer Kendra Feather says 787 meals were served; 347 at the center, 410 delivered to locations from Lyman to Bayard by 22 volunteer drivers, and 30 carry-outs. Feather says the total was in keeping with those of recent years.
