Volunteers host community Thanksgiving feast
Members of the Sisters community can come together for a free Thanksgiving Feast on Thursday, November 23. Longtime Sisters residents Deri Frazee and Jennifer Seher have worked together along with several community volunteers to pull together the Annual Sisters Community Thanksgiving Feast for the last three years.
Sisters Community Church donates its location and the kitchen, and has for the last few years, for the group's use. Several local vendors have donated other items like food and linens.
"It's really a chance for people to come together," says co-founder Deri Frazee. "I love that it's a chance to socialize for those who may not have family close or may not want to cook."
Ray's Food Place has donated turkeys; Sisters Sno-Cap Drive In, Mission Linen and several others have donated products for the group of dedicated volunteers to prepare. Community members and organizations have donated cash for other needs for the dinner as well.
Coordinators will work with their team of volunteers to feed close to 100 guests. The meal is served Thursday, November 23, at Sisters Community Church from 12 to 4 p.m. and all are welcome. Meals include turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes, salad, rolls, cranberries, green beans, assorted desserts, coffee and juice.
"People come in and enjoy a meal with friends and neighbors," says Frazee. "We will prepare to-go boxes too."
Community members can volunteer through the Facebook group "Sisters Community Thanksgiving."
"No one should be alone on Thanksgiving," Frazee said. "It's about friendship and community."
