Port Angeles: Serenity House hosts annual Thanksgiving feast

PORT ANGELES — The staff took the day off Thursday as more than 30 volunteers prepared, served and cleaned up at Serenity House’s 19th annual community Thanksgiving dinner.

“Yeah, it was a lot of work,” chef Charles Pitt said as he watched the crowd enjoying the result of his labor.

The volunteers worked five hours Wednesday and four hours Thursday to prepare 18 turkeys, 100 pounds of potatoes, 20 pounds of dressing and 25 pounds of yams, Pitt said.

The menu also included gravy, cranberries, vegetables, rolls, Jello and, of course, pumpkin pie.

Diners sat around a circle of tables spruced up with Thanksgiving decorations.

They also lounged in the chairs in front of the television showing that traditional turkey day fare, football.

Others spent their time reading, talking, lounging in the chairs or even sleeping off the large meal.
