Thankful for a generous community

Print Article

What amazing people in this community of ours!

Through an outpouring of generosity, we offered our eighth free community Thanksgiving dinner to residents in the Libby area. We served 320, including those who dined at the VFW, the homebound who had meals delivered, and those who took dinners home. Many thanks go to those who contributed their time, food, money, and talent to make this dinner such a wonderful blessing to all for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Our sincere appreciation to the VFW for the use of their facility, the Libby Ministerial Association and area churches whose members provided much of the food and volunteer effort, Thrivent Financial for an action team grant, local merchants and all who helped in any way to make this dinner such a wonderful event.

We are thankful and pray for many blessings for our community during the Christmas season!

—Pastor Roberta Smythe, Christ Lutheran Church; Rhea Bernardy, St. Joseph Catholic Church
