Kingman Letter: Thanks for supporting the Dolan Springs Christmas dinner
A special thanks to all who helped and all who donated food to the Dolan Springs Christmas dinner at the Community Center.
We had a terrific turnout for our 2011 Christmas Day dinner, with plenty of turkey, ham and accessories, including lots of pies. Donations of food came from businesses, churches and individuals.
The chairwoman of the event, Barbara Soto, did a terrific job; some of her volunteers were Sean Johnston, Mike and Michelle Jose, Mercedes Stout, Gil Devine, Sue Baughman, Karen Nash, Irene Ahuna, Lee Ann Ahuna, Lynn Hensen, Norma Rupert, Ferne Lewis, Barbara Spencer and Pat Spencer, with Patsy Jose as door greeter.
We were pleased to have Santa and Mrs. Claus present, to give out stockings with candy for the children; they represented the AMVETS.
Our goal was reached in serving 250 meals. Food boxes were delivered to in-home elderly, the Gila Home residents and Dolan Springs Fire Department by Floyd Nash and Richard Ray.
Thanks to Kingman Walmart, Dolan Springs AMVETS, Dolan Springs St. Vincent de Paul, LDS Church and many people who brought food in for their donations.
