Volunteers make it happen | Letters

We have received many “Kudos” and “Thank yous” for the Community Thanksgiving Dinner and they are very appreciated. A big event  does need someone to organize it; but it also does not come together without the effort and hard work of countless volunteers.

We had 117-plus volunteers this year and more than 500 diners.

For the past seventeen years, we have been blessed with the  enthusiastic participation of repeat volunteers and first timers (who usually become repeat volunteers) as well as the support of the service clubs, and Friday Harbor businesses.

However the most rewarding aspect of the Community Thanksgiving Dinner is the good will and smiles of all the participants including the diners.

Thank you San Juan Island!
