An annual Thanksgiving dinner was served on Thursday, Nov. 22., at the Olson Senior Center. Over 150 people were served from noon until 4 p.m. The dinner served by volunteers, who prefer to remain anonymous, consisted of turkey, ham, and all the holiday fixings, plus desserts. The meal was free, but donations were accepted, raising over $500 for the senior center.
The volunteers said, “We want to make sure to thank all the kind businesses and citizens who donated and helped them make this day an awesome event and made the day one of friendship and thanksgiving.”
In Alamo, Gwen and Joe Sutherlan once again hosted their annual Thanksgiving dinner at the Pahranagat Valley Senior Center. Another good turnout was on hand to enjoy the feast and company.
Vendors sell crafts, holiday items at Christmas Bazaar
The Pioche Senior Center hosted its annual Christmas Bazaar on Nov. 23-24.
Organizers Susie Secrest and Cheryl Flessati were pleased with the turnout and plan to continue the new tradition.
“It seemed like everybody enjoyed it and had a good time,” Secrest said. “It just went along smoothly.”
Twelve vendors offered various crafts for sale, including sewing and crocheting as well as holiday items. One vendor came from Idaho, while the rest were local residents.
Secrest said they had steady foot traffic throughout the two days.
