The Fort Fairfield Rotary Club, Knights of Columbus, and VFW together with many other local service organizations once again came together to provide a community Thanksgiving Day dinner. A holiday tradition in Fort Fairfield for over 25 years the event provides a turkey dinner with all the fixings to Fort Fairfield senior citizens who otherwise might not have a holiday dinner to enjoy.

With turkeys provided by the Friends Helping Friends organization, Students Baking a Living doing the roasting, Harvest Market, Hillside IGA and others providing veggies and condiments, the Fort Fairfield High School Girls Basketball Team serving as hostesses and servers, seasonal music provided by Dan and Friends, and local Rotarians and KC members working together to provide the behind the scenes preparations activities, a true sense of the Thanksgiving spirit was enjoyed by all.

More than 75 citizens attended the dinner and enjoyed the fellowship and entertainment at the VFW Hall, while 96 who could not come out had dinner delivered to their homes by nine volunteer drivers. Leftover prepared dinners were donated and delivered to the Homeless Shelter of Aroostook.
