Arcata Community Thanksgiving Dinner cancelled

Mad River Union

ARCATA – For the first time since the early 1990s, Arcata’s traditional Community Thanksgiving Dinner will not take place this year. The dinner had been scheduled for Thanksgiving Day at the Arcata Community Center.

Organizer Leslie Zondervan-Droz said $1,100 in funds had been received, but "not enough cooked food commitments" were donated. The event had been arranged by area faith-based organizations in cooperations with the Arcata House Partnership

"We're quite sure of being able to do it next year," Zondervan-Droz said. Her committee will meet in January, and again in July to plan next year's meal.

    I hope what they did collect in funds and in food will be donated to one of the other community dinners planned for Thanksgiving. It’d be the only right thing to do.
