The clouds parted, the sun came out and the Laguna Beach community banned together for the 21st annual Thankgiving day outreach. What started over two decades ago as a small outreach has grown into a jammed pack event made up our colorful and diverse community.  So many familiar faces made the day an overwhelming success. Traditionally held at Bluebird park but moved to the Neighborhood Congregational church due to the threat of showers, which didn't seem to slow the estimated 500 plus people from coming out.  In fact, "this logistically was probably the smoothest outreach we have had, with the kitchen and seating so close" said Mary LaRusso A.K.A.

After 20 years, one would think organizers for a community-wide Thanksgiving Day feast would have a mapped-out agenda replete with detailed instructions and job descriptions. Au contraire. Advanced planning is not part of the recipe for this Laguna Beach tradition. The Friendship Shelter and Neighborhood Congregational Church will once again partner on a Thanksgiving Day meal for the public, beginning at noon at the church at 340 St. Ann's Drive. Volunteers expect to serve 600 to 700 buffet-style meals, with food and supplies provided by individuals, churches and community groups, a news release said.

A plateful of thanks for dinner in the park On behalf of the more than 400 people who enjoyed the annual Thanksgiving potluck in Bluebird Park last week, a heaping plateful of thanks to the dozens of volunteers who showed up to help us make the meal happen. As usual, many of these volunteers come from surrounding communities stay to share the meal with us and leave before we can say thanks. And to the dozens of people who brought or dropped off the turkeys, pies, drinks and all the trimmings, we can only say: They were delicious!

Anne Wood's answering machine message ends with "Do something nice for someone. " She lives by those words. A day rarely goes by that Wood isn't doing something nice for someone - often more-than-one someone. Wood is the consummate worker bee. Her business card reads "Volunteer. " Wood's mostly unsung contributions to the community were recognized at a luncheon June 1 when the Laguna Beach Woman's Club honored her as the 2012 Woman of the Year. "Too often, people who spend most of their lives helping others are not given the recognition due them," said Sande St. John , who knows a bit about volunteering.
