On Tuesday, November 8, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) invited the entire Trinity, Sutter Creek congregation to a complete Thanksgiving feast as a way to give thanks for their support of ECW for this year.

Pastor Karen Siegfriedt (pictured right with other feast attendees) began with a moving blessing of Thanksgiving for 35 men and women from Trinity, including a few guests, who attended the meal.

The setup, food that was cooked, baked, barbecued and served, and the cleanup afterward, was a gift from the ECW Board members, with help from their husbands, including reception coordinator Terry Treadwell and her husband. Dorean Davis’ homemade pumpkin pie and cheesecake put the banquet over the top. There were even toasts with non-alcoholic wine.

After the meal, Frank Tortorich gave a historic first-person presentation of a young man, William Coray, Sergeant in Company B, Mormon Battalion, from his coming to the Mormon faith in 1840; his march to California in the army along with his hired washer woman wife, Melissa; and his death in Salt Lake City, Utah. Frank continued the story of William’s celebrated wife after William died.

We all shared a wonderful afternoon of blessed thanks.
