Thanksgiving feast planned for less fortunate


(L-R) Tina Knoth, Suzi Carpino, Linn McBride, Karen Zackula, Melba Fujiura and Haley Brown helped to serve more than 1,000 people at last year's Thanksgiving Day dinner for the less fortunate.

The Churchill Media family of stations, La Maquina/La X 98.7 FM, Radio Tekila 101.7 FM and KZXR-The Source 1310 AM, are inviting families of the Valley to their Thanksgiving dinner for the less fortunate.

Turkey with gravy, potatoes, rolls and more will be served to those who might not be able to have their own Thanksgiving dinner this year.

This is the fifth year of the Thanksgiving Day dinner for the less fortunate and the second year it will be held in Sunnyside at the community center, located at 1521 S. First Street. Dinner will be served from 1 to 5 p.m.

The Churchill Media family of stations would like the public's help in spreading the word about this special dinner. They are asking people who might know someone in need this year to tell them about the dinner.

Members of the Sunnyside Lions Club and the Sunnyside School District's Readiness to Learn Program will cook and serve the Thanksgiving dinner. Also assisting will be Partners Worldwide.

The food is being donated by Grandview Market Place, Double D Steakhouse, Food Pavilion, Coastal Pacific Mortgage and Real Estate, and Super Bakery.
