If you can imagine a 12-inch diameter plate overflowing with great food, you must have been at the Cordes Lakes Thanksgiving Dinner Saturday, Nov. 19.
Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy filled half the plate. Fresh yams were covered with a pecan crunch. Green bean casserole was included, and fresh cranberries were used to make an tasty and unusual sauce.
Add to that the roll and butter, with desserts of pumpkin pies, homemade and hand made by Chef Alice Spry.
The veggie tray with dip kept the edge off people's hunger pangs as they waited for their plates to be served. Chef Alice outdid herself on this delicious dinner.
This was also the much-awaited day for the Treasure Chest drawing. The Community Association has been working on filling the chest for several months. The raffle was such a success that Norm Kozak was able to provide four extra prizes along with the chest.
Five children were requested from the dinner crowd to draw the winning tickets.
Winner of the chest and contents was Anice Grant, who held up her long stream of purchased tickets. She truly wanted that chest!
Proceeds from the the Treasure Chest raffle and the Thanksgiving dinner go to support projects of the Cordes Lakes Community Association.
