Still serving for Thanksgiving

Dickinson County Healthcare System in Iron Mountain on Wednesday sent out 420 meals — 147 picked up, 273 delivered — for its annual community Thanksgiving dinner. Adjusting to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dietary staff this year offered frozen meals that allowed them to still serve everyone but avoided crowding volunteers and staff in the kitchen. Volunteers then delivered meals to those alone for the holiday or not able to prepare a meal or leave their homes in Iron Mountain, Kingsford, Norway and Quinnesec as well as Florence, Aurora and Niagara in Wisconsin. Here, clockwise from left, Sue Krueger, Alexa Swanson, Patti Mattson, DCH Director of Public Relation and Business Development Joe Rizzo and Teresa Schettler cut the pumpkin pies.
