         Thanksgiving Dinner
Over 60 people spent this Thanksgiving in the company of friends, family, and neighbors at the annual Phelps
Community Thanksgiving Dinner at the Phelps Community Center. Guests feasted on all of the traditional
Thanksgiving fixings along with a variety of pies baked by several community members. Every guest left with
a door prize as well. Thanks to Ontario ARC and the Garden Hoes for making such beautiful candle center
pieces. A special thank you goes out to all of the volunteers who helped put on this great event including
Linda Leight, who organized the event. Without all of your help this event would not have been possible.
