On Sunday the Orange Lions Club hosted its 26th annual Thanksgiving Feast welcoming the town’s seniors and others who may not have family with whom to share the holiday.
The High Plains Community Center gym was full, with a record crowd of about 150 guests this year (that’s 20-30 more than in past years for whatever reason). The Lions were ready for them with 16 beautiful roasted turkeys (perfectly moist and tender); trays of sweet potatoes and stuffing; dozens of festive cookies and cupcakes from Julia’s Bakery; dozens of pies and lots of love.
The entertainment they lined up for the event ran non-stop throughout the meal. First, a talented young pianist, then the Orange Senior Choir, followed by a guitarist.
The Lions and the community volunteers were happy to provide everyone with a lovely, relaxing afternoon with a nutritious meal and entertainment.
They will be back again in 2015 for the 27th annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
