Thanksgiving can be a very lonely time for seniors. Over the past five years, Jake’s Diner has offered free Thanksgiving dinners to seniors who are alone and can't afford to buy a nice meal. "Its the traditional Thanksgiving fare. Everything’s done the old fashioned way, turkey, ham, all the trimmings. It’s the only time we do reservations only. So it's a reserved situation with a set amount of people per hour. And we have entertainment for them." Jakes owner Lyle Hicks says all the workers are volunteers. The food is donated by the food purveyors he uses and from private donations. Any tips or cash donation they come in will all go to the Family Access Network. Hicks says he chose them because they help kids stay in school. He says they also want to know about any shut-ins that could use a nice warm Thanksgiving meal, and they will deliver to them. You can call Jakes Diner for more information at 541-382-0118.
