First supper a smash

With a new 5 p.m. starting time for the Community Supper in Chester this year, the serving line doesn’t seem to be that long, at first. Within minutes it rapidly grew and only the efficiency of the serving crew assured that everyone got through in a timely manner. The Nov. 21 supper, sponsored by Sierra Hospice, is the first of the season and the full-blown turkey dinner prepared by Chef Carol Franchetti brought out an estimated 200-plus folks from the Lake Almanor area.
