Baugh says the turnout was steady for over an hour at the meal. He says they served until they ran out of food. More meals were delivered to people who couldn't get to the dinner.

The Salvation Army Kettle campaign kicked-off November 19th. Baugh says bell-ringers are still needed. Some ringers are paid. For more information about how to volunteer, check out the earlier article attached to this one.
