Marysville Yuba Sutter Appeal Democrat (Newspaper) - November 27, 1985, Marysville Yuba, California A-2 Appeal-Democrat ^^SSSZTiSt' Rebound for Thanksgiving Volunteers bring holiday cheer to ravaged community ALBRIGHT, W.Va. (AP) - The smell of home cooking greets visitors to Albright's fire hall-turned-relief center. In the kitchen, 27-year-old Scott Richards, wearing a long apron and knee-high rubber boots, stirs a vat of chili, then moves quickly to a pot of cream of broccoli soup. "This is today's dinner," he said Tuesday. "We'll start cooking Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday. By Thursday, you won't even recognize this place. The floor won't look the same and we'll have the place all fixed up." Richards, an antique dealer from Columbus, Ohio, is one of more than 200 Red Cross volunteers who came from out of state to help West Virginia's flood victims put their lives back in order. Instead of Thanksgiving in their own homes, the volunteers will cook the meals, serve the food and talk to the lonely in communities across the state. "What we want to do is make it nice for them," said Richards. "They've been digging in the mud for weeks now. We want to wait on them and take care of them this holiday." Record flooding Nov. 4-5 swept away cars, homes and entire communities across eastern West Virginia. State officials say damage is estimated at $480 million, with 38 people dead and 10 missing. The American Red Cross and the Salvation Army are conducting separate Thanksgiving dinner drives in several communities hardest hit by the floods. Each group says it will feed 5,000. After seeing the devastation, several volunteers in the flood zone say missing Thanksgiving with their loved ones will be easy to bear. "I have a husband and family in Washington, DC," said Sally Stewart. "They weren't too happy when I told them I wouldn't be home for Thanksgiving, but I have a Red Cross family here." hillccest plaza Red Cross volunteer Scott Richards (AP Pho,0) Continental Galleries investment art dealers and custom framing Trio Sports Athletic footwear and sportswear Jane's women's apparel Interiors by Lucia custom window coverings The Flower Petal'er flowers and gifts Centre Court activewear for tennis, golf and skiing Lovelies body fashion and intimate apparel flRWjW^W^^^^^^ WW 18 Cook's Sweet Shoppe chocolates and gifts Smith's fine jewelry Trio Sports Ski Shop ski service and accessories New Dimensions full figure specialty shop Nail Fantasy complete nail & skin care Kawasaki Giftware presents The Big Apple unique gift ideas Smokin' T's custom t-shirts, transfers and lettering Dusan's Danny'stailor and men's shop Designer's Edge men's and women's hair styling Clocksmith's clocks, gifts and cards The Gathering restaurant (MOCIMICBOC will be OPEN THANKSGIVING to serve you 810 "E" STREET, MARYSVILLE Hours 6 A.M. to Midnight 229 Clark Avenue-Yuba City Open Monday-Saturday 10 to 6 - Friday till 9 p.
