Lorain County Community College served the community with warm hearts and dedication during its annual Thanksgiving Dinner held in the Spitzer Conference Center on Nov. 23. Rochelle Fairley, the Administrative Assistant for Student Life coordinated the free family-style dinner in conjunction with LCCC’s dining services, Student Senate, and other employees from Student Life.

Behind the scenes, 154 volunteers comprised of staff, students, and community members rallied together to serve enough food for 832 people.

“You’re only as great as your team, without the team we could not pull off this large event,” said Fairley. Orlando Bread and Gordon Foods donated a portion of food, while executive chef Chase Wilcox and chef Jason Herman oversaw the food preparation.
