Farmington Daily Times

The Salvation Army branch in Farmington, along with nearly 300 volunteers, served more than 600 people a Thanksgiving dinner Thursday at the Farmington Civic Center. Lt. Bill Simon of the Salvation Army said many area companies, nonprofit organizations and San Juan County government agencies donated food to help serve those who attended a meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and desert. In order to feed the more than 600 people at the dinner, Simon said the volunteers spent several days preparing 130 turkeys, 400 pounds of mashed potatoes, 400 pounds of stuffing and 40 trays of green beans.
