“We’re glad to help,” said Katherine Rubio, Director for the Seminole Theatre, last year when the Seminole Theatre was the site where Linda Fagan’s
tradition of bringing a team together to assemble and give out Thanksgiving boxes took place. On Tuesday, Nov. 23rd, volunteers from individuals and groups were busy again in the lobby to ready 120 boxes of turkeys, and the usual array of holiday meal items.
“Thanksgiving baskets are done every year for the past twenty-two years for needy families and military families, “ Dr. Fagan said. “It’s our staff and family, community leaders, and friends who come together; some have been with me from the beginning.”
