On Dec. 5th the community of Mabton held its annual senior
citizens Christmas dinner. Thisdinner has been going on since 1984. We were
blessed with great weather and a great turnout.
This dinner is free to all seniors 55 and over, Mabton
residents and ex-Mabton people, and there is no charge for the dinner.
There are many people who help put this all together. I
would like to thank some of them for the love and time they took out of their
lives to help: the Mabton School District for the use of the building, the
cooks, Sharon Ott, Rhonda Hendricks, Judy Madison, H. Hudson, Vera Zavala, Mrs.
Malorie's class, the Miss Mabton court, Pastor Mike Davis, the Mabton VFW, Mary
Marques for decorating the tables and the Mabton Fire Department for helping to
deliver food to people who couldn't attend.
We especially want to thank the following merchants, for
without them the dinner would not have happened: Sunnyside Safeway, Blue Sky
Market, Snyder's, Sysco Foods and Sunnyside Wal-Mart.
If I have forgotten anyone please know your work and time
was greatly appreciated.
We hope everyone stays healthy and happy so we can have
another great dinner.
Thank you all.
