This year, approximately 20 PVHH volunteers will prepare the traditional a Thanksgiving meal of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, ham, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, roll, and pumpkin pie utilizing the Platte Valley Community Center Kitchen.
This free dinner is made possible through monetary donations received from last year’s dinner and generous donations by local businesses: Platte Valley Community Center – Joe Elder, Wolf Hotel –Doug Campbell, Valley Foods, Cassie Orduno, and Marie Christen.
