Lewis A dinner was held at Ali-Jacks restaurant at the Magic Pines Campground Sept. 13 to thank volunteers for helping with Barbara and Mike Marty's restaurant.
The campground owners for the past 20 years are Gordon and Janet Ingram. David Eddington operates the restaurant.
Volunteers at the dinner included Brenda Carmer, Jeff, Jill, Emma Jean, Bud, and Jeffrey Drummond, and Stacy and John Goodroe.
Barbara said they wanted to do something at the closing of the camp’s season for their volunteers who have acted like family to the California-based couple.
“It’s a very inexpensive way to show people who have helped you how much you appreciate their invaluable services,” Barbara said.
Eddington made all the fixings of a family thanksgiving dinner with turkey, brown gravy, corn and green beans, mashed and sweet potatoes and homemade bread. For dessert, the guests topped off their dinner with homemade pies.
“Everyone here is family so we wanted to have a family dinner, I think more people should invite their staff who work so hard for them to do more things like this,” Barbara said.
Barbara said the volunteers did everything from helping maintain the buildings to cleaning around the grounds.
The restaurant is located at the entrance to Magic Pines Campground and RV Park on US Route 9. The campground and restaurant will reopen in 2014.
