Thanksgiving abounds at annual Serenity House feast

PORT ANGELES –Visitors to the 18th annual Thanksgiving Day dinner at Serenity House were greeted by turkey on the table, football on the television and good spirits all around.

“This means I don’t have to cook a dinner at home. So there’s a great advantage to it,” said Marcia Allen.

Allen, who worked at Serenity House for two years before taking another job, returned to help with the Thanksgiving dinner at the adult facility at 2202 W. 16th St.

“I just enjoy doing this, it’s a fun thing,” she said, smiling as she whirled through the rooms, making sure everything was running smoothly and everyone was happy.

An estimated 30 volunteers helped prepare, serve and clean up after the dinner, which lasted from 1 to 4 p.m.
