125 Meals Served at Chinook Thanksgiving Dinner

CHINOOK, Mont. (NMB) – The community Thanksgiving dinner Thursday afternoon in Chinook served about 125 meals, according to Betty Billmayer, who is one of the organizers.

Billmayer says although they didn’t serve as many ham dinners as expected, the volunteers stepped up and made it a day to remember.

“We had a great time. We had really good help. Several people that hadn’t helped before came in and helped and really seemed to enjoy it. We always have fun working together. It’s just great to see people come out.”

Approximately 60 of the meals were delivered, 30 were picked up at the Fairgrounds, and the remainder were people that opted to sit-down and eat.

“People seemed to really enjoy (the sit-down meal). We had lots of people just say how good it was to get out and see people. At the Fairgrounds, we’re all spread out. So we’re not too close together. But everyone just seemed to be really having a good time.”

This year’s dinner was in honor of Dorris Hamilton, who was instrumental in making the event a community staple.
