Happy Thanksgiving

For Bill and Janet Harsh, Thanksgiving is more than just a holiday. It's an opportunity to give thanks to the truckers who provide their livelihood. The couple, the one-time owners of the Pollard Flat USA restaurant and truck stop, have for the past 28 years provided Thanksgiving dinner - free of charge - to truckers. They sold the restaurant to their youngest son Daniel Harsh and his wife Rebekah several years ago. They have continued the tradition, and Bill and Janet Harsh still work at the truck stop part time. "This highway provides for us all year," Bill Harsh said. "This gives us a chance to say thanks. The stories that we hear from truckers wanting to be home with their families make us want to make them a part of ours." Last year, the family served 150 people. Bill Harsh said that was slow.
