Volunteers Hit the Ground Running with DECC Thanksgiving Preps

The DECC Thanksgiving Day Buffet will be Thursday, Nov. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

DULUTH, Minn.- Thanksgiving preps were already in full swing at the DECC early Monday morning.

Hundreds of volunteers came in for a week of peeling potatoes, baking bread and cooking more than 200 turkeys to feed thousands at Duluth’s annual holiday meal.

Volunteers like Mike Dittmar, who’s been helping prep the dinner for 15 years, say giving back to those in the community is their favorite Thanksgiving tradition.

“I think everyone is just thanking for everything that we have as a community, as a country, and just sharing comradery with different people, your family or whatever,” Dittmar said.

The DECC Thanksgiving Day Buffet will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Thursday.
