The Race Towards the 4th Annual Tahoe Community Thanksgiving Is About to Begin

Isn't this too cute? The kids from the first Annual Tahoe Community Thanksgiving created these pine cone turkey centerpieces.  This year kids from the local SOS program will be doing the decorating. I am having trouble believing this will be our 4th annual event.  It takes so much work but is so much fun for everyone. Last year I figured we used over 1000 volunteer hours, not counting the time I put in but for those 1000 hours we fed more than 600 people. 

Does anyone want to make this great plate for our decorating day on Wed Nov 26?

Hullo, I realize I am not doing well as a blogger this year but blogging, Facebook and community dinner for several hundred people leaves me speechless. If you know me you know this is a joke, I am never speechless! Please join us at 8318 N. Lake Blvd in Kings Beach California 96143 between 2 pm to 6:30 pm.  If you want to volunteer, come and volunteer. We have lots of work, lots of fun and lots of food.  We would love to see you there.  Phone calls are not likely to be returned for the next few days.  If you don't know what to bring just bring a friend.  We will have a Dog Zone! Outdoors for our furry buddies.

Pray for the people of the Philippines

Thanksgiving is not just about food...although food is a good thing...Thanksgiving is about giving thanks and appreciating all we have...even if we don't have as much as we want do we have as much as we need? Our prayers go out to all the people of the Philippines whose lives, homes and families have been devastated by this terrible storm.
