Robert Pugh, master German woodworker for Seville Quarter, prepares a turkey for frying Wednesday as he and other volunteers from Seville Quarter put together around 130 turkey dinners for families in need. The dinners were funded through proceeds from 2013 Wild Turkey Trot 5k run last weekend. The effort was started by Pugh over 10 years ago when he decided to prepare turkeys for the clean up crew at Seville Quarter. Now families in need are selected through local charities to receive a complete Thanksgiving dinner to take home for the holiday. Seville Quarter fried 80 turkeys and the Happy Pig participated by smoking 72 turkeys this year
