Emily Gomulak, of Soldotna, goes in for a slice of the more than 30 pies donated to The Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving Day dinner, held at their Community Center Building on Forest Drive on Thursday. “We started cooking on Wednesday,” said Craig Fanning, one of the organizers of the event. This included 11 turkeys and “I couldn’t even begin to say how many side dishes, but there’s enough here to feed 200 people,” said Bobbi Stelljes, a volunteer cook. Jeannie Fanning, another volunteer, said the event drew people from all walks of life. “It’s not just for the homeless, or people who don’t have family in the area or people who don’t want to cook. It’s for people who just want to share the day together,” she said.
