Letter of thanks: Thanksgiving feed at Rednecks

I would like to share an awesome event that took place Thanksgiving Day. A group of volunteers from the community came together at Rednecks Southern Pit BBQ to serve a Thanksgiving dinner complete with all the fixings and dessert to our neighbors, less fortunate and those in distress. The smiles, thank yous, and to hear so many explain that if it were not for us they would not have had a meal, it would bring a tear of joy to your eyes.

Thank you to our sponsors for your commitment each year to this worthy cause: Jamie Taylor at Kingman Regional Medical Center, Roger Campos at Rainbow Dinner, Buffalo and Suzie from H & H Printing, Dave and Terry Akers from Kingman Furniture, John Kirby at The Gardens Rehab and Care Center & The Lingenfelter Center, Gary Christenson from Home Style Furniture, Lily Scholer at Grace Lutheran Church Child Development Center, Saint Mary Church Parishioners, St. Vincent de Paul Society, and Our Daily Bread Sandwich Ministry.

A BIG thank you to Bubba, Tammy and Brandon Floyd at Rednecks Southern Pit BBQ for their hospitality and generosity. The Floyd family cooked our turkeys and provided their restaurant to serve the dinner.

Please take the time to thank these wonderful sponsors and support their businesses; without them we would not have had the opportunity to serve 549 meals.
