Nick's begins their Holiday Season
providing Thanksgiving lunch for Seniors.
The Chamber of Commerce assists.  Bravo!
Pacifica Tribune/Letters to the Editor, 12/1/15.  "Gift of giving" by Jim Lange, Senior Services Supervisor." 

"On behalf of the City of Pacifica Senior Services Division, we would like to thank the Gust family for their tradition of providing seniors a Thanksgiving lunch at Nicks Restaurant. Over 120 seniors enjoyed the bountiful meal provided. The Nick’s Restaurant staff out did themselves with excellent food and service as usual. Our seniors look forward to this annual event and appreciate all the efforts put forth to make it happen.

The Gust family has graciously done this annual event for our local seniors for over three decades—serving thousands of meals with all the trimmings, service and fine dining experience for no charge!  They have never expected any recognition—just simply enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving. This hospitality makes the whole dining experience great and is an excellent segue into the holiday season.

We would also like to recognize the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce for their participation this year by assisting the Nick’s staff with the food service. They served like pros and with the same compassion as the Gust Family standard. The Pacifica Chamber and the Gust Family provided nice raffle prizes to wrap up this special day.  Thank you to all who contributed to making this annual event such a joyous event for our seniors."

Related, newspaper article.  Pacifica Tribune/12/2/15, "Nick's treats seniors to Thanksgiving feast." "For over 30 years, the Gust family at Nick’s Restaurant in Rockaway Beach has been hosting a Thanksgiving lunch for community seniors. Last Tuesday, 135 seniors were treated to a meal with all the trimmings, service and fine dining experience for no cost. Assisting the Gust service staff were members of the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce."
