Thanksgiving for all on First Street
SNOHOMISH — In the photo, volunteer Sandy Erickson scoops some Thanksgiving dressing and potatoes onto the plate of a man that came in from the
rain to eat a Thanksgiving meal and watch football at Andy’s Fish House on First Street.
Restaurant owner Andy Gibbs said he wanted to take up the mantle of a free community Thanksgiving meal that former Twin Eagles Café owner Sue Williamson left after she passed in 2014.
“Everyone, staff and volunteers, Chef Dana, ... J&L Barbecue, has
been a huge help — this kind of blew up,” Gibbs said. “This meal just isn’t for the homeless, though, it’s for the community, it’s for those that maybe are single or don’t have family or have no place to go and eat and watch football; well, Snohomish is like one
big family and they are welcome at this family’s table. It’s awesome and this was Sue’s tradition for years and I wanted to pick it up.”
This was the first community Thanksgiving hosted by Andy’s Fish House.
