Even snow and ice on the local roads didn’t stop the Third Annual Community Dinner from being a success Sunday at the High Plains Community Center.

According to organizers, more than 312 people stopped by for a holiday meal Saturday.
Thanks to a large number of donations and turkeys the event set a new attendance record, the spokesman added.
“We took the money (donations) and right before we bought the turnkeys,” Bob Dolezal said.
There were 150 people ach of the first two years.
But now, the attendance more than doubled.
“People are realizing this is for the community,” he added. “Anybody can come.”
The turkeys were not only for eating, but they also were up for grabs after the meal as prizes for bingo.
There were more than 20 volunteers, including the 4H Club from Halliday.
