Letter to the Editor 11-30

Dear Editor,
 We would like to thank the community for the great support we received for the Community Thanksgiving Dinner at the National Guard Armory. When we were asked to take over this project after the Moose Club closed, we didn’t have a lot of time to plan or raise money. We had no doubt that we could pull it off, but we were not sure what kind of support we would receive from the community.
 We were amazed at the generosity of the citizens and businesses in the community who donated funds. We then started receiving calls from individuals wanting to volunteer to help serve, cook, deliver meals and clean up after the dinner. More calls came in from people wanting to donate cooked turkeys and desserts. The calls just kept coming.
 On Thanksgiving, we served approximately 400 meals. We had over 60 volunteers on site and not just from Concordia, but from the surrounding communities as well.
 We had golf carts shuttling people from their cars to the front door. Within a couple of hours after we stopped serving, the Armory was cleaned up and everything was put away. We had a couple of minor problems that we were able to fix; but, for the most part, it went smoother than we could have imagined.
 We could not have accomplished this without the support of the community and again we say, thank you. We are already planning for next year’s dinner as we plan on continuing this tradition with the great support of the community.
Thank you,
                  Charles Myers & Lisa Valcoure
