Community dinner in

 its 12th year

Friends, neighbors and total strangers shared a free holiday meal Thursday at the Community Building hosted by Community Thanksgiving, Inc.
Approximately 475 diners came to the meal including Krystal and Jeremiah Burkholder (left).
The efforts of 225 volunteers helped make the meal possible, according to Barbara Greischar, volunteer coordinator.
Diners were treated to nine ice cream cakes donated by Dairy Queen.
“People seemed to go for the ice cream cakes. We had a lot of cookies leftover. There was a good variety,” Greischar said.
