Turkey time on Whidbey

North and Central Whidbey volunteers are busy putting the finishing touches on community Thanksgiving dinners to be held tomorrow, Nov. 24. The dinners are free but donations are always welcome as supplies need to be purchased for next year’s dinner. Here’s where to bring the family -- or just yourself -- to enjoy Thanksgiving with friends and neighbors.

Oak Harbor

On Thanksgiving Day, North Whidbey Community Harvest is proud and happy to offer a free turkey and ham dinner with all the fixins’ that will be served from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Oak Harbor.

People unable to get out or who are working may have a meal delivered upon request. Call 675-9909 in advance and leave a message or, on Thanksgiving, call the Elks Lodge at 675-1321 and speak with the delivery coordinator or his staff.

To help pay for the community cause, drop off a donation with Jack Stiltz at Bay Printing on Barrington Avenue. Donations may be mailed to North Whidbey Community Harvest, c/o Bay Printing, 1131 SE Ely St., Oak Harbor, WA  98277. Checks should be made out to “Community Harvest.”


Friends, neighbors, families and visitors are welcome to join the 13th annual community Thanksgiving potluck Nov. 24, at the Coupeville Recreation Hall on the corner of Alexander and Coveland.

A traditional spread will be served buffet-style from noon until 2:30 p.m. or until the food runs out.

Turkey and ham are provided by the organizers, while the rest of the menu is up to those who attend. The gathering is loosely organized by locals, and help is always welcome. To get involved, call Sue Winker at 678-1224, or just stop by tomorrow and join the crowd.
