The Community Holiday Dinner Becomes a Tradition for Many

Hundreds stood in line at the Sheridan Holiday Inn, waiting for the minutes to tick down to 4 o'clock, the time to begin Sheridan's 23rd annual Community Holiday Dinner.

Erin DeFries heads up the event.

What began in 1991 as a dinner provided for those less fortunate has turned into a tradition for both family and friends, a holiday dinner that requires over 100 volunteers and more than 48 cooked turkeys.

The dinner was free and kids were treated to a gift and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Everett Schulz brought his family.

For DeFries, the Community Holiday Dinner is all about giving.

Forty-eight turkeys means 960 pounds of turkey meat.
