About 400 people were fed during the first-time event Nov. 25. The Daily Triplicate/RickPostal
The After School Program at Smith River School would like to thank Smith River Ray’s Food Place for all the work and donations for the Smith River Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Nov. 25.
Approximately 400 people were fed that day at this first-time event.
The bakery department employees, Christine and Rosa, cooked 20 turkeys, 60 pies and 450 rolls. The manager, Terri, and Smith River Ray’s employees, delivered the turkeys every half hour, because of our limited space.
Thank you to all those who helped. The dinner was a total success because of their efforts!
This is scheduled to be an annual event.
More than a hundred people showed up for the 14th annual Festival of Trees sponsored by the Crescent City Emblem Club No. 175 on Saturday afternoon at the VFW Hall.

Pat Hudson, Emblem Club member and a coordinator for the festival, said she was pleased with how many people showed up to the $10 a seat event — but the number of trees donated was a little skimpy.
Hudson said 19 trees were given this year, but last year she had 24.
“I think everybody is pulling in their finances — at least some people are,” she said, laughing.
The event showcases elaborate Christmas trees decorated by individuals or organizations. Participants bought raffle tickets for donated items and were served a croissant, ham and turkey luncheon, complete with a glass of wine.
Cherie’s Boutique also held a fashion show at the event.
Proceeds from the event go toward local charities.

Staying connected to family and friends during the holidays is important, but it’s often difficult for those serving in the military, especially Americans stationed overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Now, Crescent City residents can help, thanks to a couple of programs put together by AT&T.
