Newhall Community Center hosts Thanksgiving dinner for SCV families

On Monday evening, the doors of the Newhall Community Center opened for families in Santa Clarita to gather and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

The Thanksgiving celebration was held at the Newhall Community Center for residents to stop by and enjoy a free meal with members of the community.

“This event is open to the community, to anyone who wants to come,” said Yolanda Ledezma, Community Services Supervisor.

Attendees had a variety of food options, including turkey, toppings, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, and rolls. Plus, there was a dessert table filled with goodies including cookies and palms.

Although the Thanksgiving community event is an annual tradition that has been going on for 20 years, this event was special, Ledezma explained: “This is the first time the event has been back since the pandemic began.

Parkway Motorcars, a Santa Clarita car dealership, provided the food and paid for the catering, according to Ledezma.

While Parkway sponsored the Thanksgiving dinner, many volunteers attended the event, including Santa Clarita City Council member Cameron Smyth helping serve the food.

“There are different volunteers who come together to decorate and prepare the event. We also have municipal staff helping us as well,” Ledezma said.

In addition to this celebration at Newhall Center, another community Thanksgiving dinner is planned at Canyon Country Community Center on Tuesday, November 22, from 5-7 p.m.
