The fourth year of the annual Sisters Community Thanksgiving Dinner is behind us, but the thankfulness is far from over, according to Jennifer Knowles-Seher, one of the event's organizers.

More than 50 volunteers came together to pitch in and serve more than 250 hot, delicious meals to the community, including the on-shift firefighters of the Sisters-Camp Sherman Rural Fire Protection District on Thanksgiving evening.

The event was held at Sisters Community Church.

"Volunteer time isn't all that makes it happen, though," Seher said. "This year, we've had many local community businesses pitch in to help offset the costs of the food needed to make this a free event for all who wish or need to have a meal." (See "Sisters salutes," page 11).

This is the second year the community event has been held to provide meals for people who may not have another place to go to celebrate Thanksgiving.

"As a host and sponsor, I couldn't have imagined just how big this would have grown in such a short time," Seher said. "I can say, however, that Thanksgiving has become a day I look forward to every year for JUST this very reason. I can't thank everyone involved enough for all the time, effort, thoughts, prayers, contributions and hard work.

"Coming together to share a meal with precious friends, neighbors and family is what Thanksgiving is - and this particular event defines what community is, and why I love Sisters so very much."
