Okay, so maybe they weren’t elves exactly, but these volunteers on Thanksgiving Day certainly made a lot of holidays brighter and more delicious. Each year Larry Jakubiak and a group of generous people give their time to make the Hotchkiss Community Thanksgiving Dinner a success. This year’s volunteers were Katie, Chris, Ed, Aaron, Stacie, Casey, Janet, Walt, Debbie, Richard, Myrna, Larry and Pam. It was so much fun, there is going to be a free Hotchkiss community dinner on Christmas Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hotchkiss Senior Center. Bring a salad or dessert if you like or just bring yourself. Everyone welcome. Donations accepted. Dinner will be delivered to shut-ins. Volunteers should be at the Senior Center by 10 a.m. Dec. 25.
