Devils Backbone Outpost in Lexington staff prepare Thanksgiving dinner for The Rock-bridge Community Table Monday evening. Pictured are (front, from left) Shaun Roman, Ashley Cornett, Erich Lingenfelter, Penny Lusk and (in back at kitchen window) Robbie Stone. They were five of the 22 volunteers who cooked and served the meal for about 180 people, which is “much larger than normal,” said Gary Kohl, president of the board of directors for Community Table. “It’s all about giving back to the community,” said Cornett, one of the cooks. “Every quarter, we pick a different organization to give back to and we picked The Community Table. We collected all the donations, raised all the money, and cooked all the food.” (Claudia Schwab photo)
