Due to COVID-19 risks, the Community Thanksgiving Dinner could not be held as a public event in Siletz for the second year. But a big thanks to the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians for the Charitable Contribution Fund grant of $3,170. In addition, a big thanks goes to those who provided private monetary donations and the many generous local grocers. One hundred boxes of turkey dinner makings were assembled by volunteers at the Siletz City Hall on Nov. 20. Thanks to this concerted effort, 250 people will enjoy a traditional turkey dinner.
