The Community Thanksgiving Dinner has a 27-year history in Jamestown and traces its beginning back to an event at Pantry Cafe.

Between 150 and 200 volunteers served about 1,500 meals and delivered about 200 to those who couldn't make it.

"This is the first time we've been by ourselves in 42 years of marriage", Dan said.

Lead cook Mr. John has been a part of the Salem Dinner for 16 years and does not plan on stopping. To donate, go to their website. But sitting down with a plate full of turkey Thursday, she said she has a lot to be thankful for.

"If it wasn't for this dinner, I would be either eating in a restaurant alone, or eating by myself home alone, and that wouldn't be in the spirit of Thanksgiving", she said. "The meal is prepared all by volunteers, a lot of the folks who participate in that preparation are the people we see here day in and day out".

This year, almost 300 people gave thanks for a delicious meal complete with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and delicious cake for dessert. "And a very rewarding experience", said Indermuehle.

For David Indermuehle, delivering Thanksgiving meals has become a tradition. "We have faith that we'll be able to do the meal again next year".

"I wanted to keep busy during the holiday so I thought this was the best way to do it", she said and added that her husband served 40 years in the military.

Food, fellowship and friendship were served up Thursday as the Alle-Kiski Valley observed Thanksgiving.

"When you find a group of people who are like-minded like you who want to take care of people, who find joy in serving people, it's a lovely thing", said Korrin Black, co-coordinator for Friends Thanksgiving. "It's a good feeling and I will be back next year, for sure", he said. Almost 75 percent of the meals are actually delivered. "In house, we serve usually between 250-350 people".

"I'm just happy to be here and to be blessed to still be able to do this", he said.

Opening the doors to two large freezers, Jewell said they've already got a jump start on their Christmas Eve Dinner. Many people came with other family members, while others were by themselves.

"A family invited our family to help eight years ago and when you've been without food you know what that means", Concordia Lutheran Youth Minister Chris Henze said.
