Large crowd attends annual
Whitehall Pantry fundraiser

Ledger Publisher

It didn’t take long for a huge line to form last Friday evening at the LDS Church in Whitehall.
The large crowd was gathered in line even before the 5:30 p.m. start of the annual LDS Church Harvest Dinner.
As hungry diners waited in lines, the smell or turkey and all the trimmings filled the church. Once in line, the diners were able to feast on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, salad, vegetables, rolls, and a wide-variety of desserts. Those in attendance were asked to give a donation, with the proceeds given to the Whitehall Food Pantry.
Among those in attendance was Earleen Lloyd who tries to make the event every year.
“Not only do I get to visit with family and friends at dinner, I get to give to the friends I haven’t met yet. It is worth everyone’s time and I appreciate all the effort put into it,” she said.
