The Thanksgiving holiday has a way of bringing people together for great causes. Three area churches, St. John Lutheran, St. Peter in Chains Catholic and Wheelersburg United Methodist will host the 10th annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, Saturday, Nov. 23, from noon until 2 p.m. Again this year the dinner will be at the Wheelersburg School Cafetorium.
Perry Prosch, of Wheelersburg United Methodist said the is important outreach effort to the hungry and a way of uniting churches.
“Our No. 1 reason for holding this annual dinner is to feed the hungry. Also, it is for fellowship, and for the churches to work together,” Prosch said.
Preparation will begin at 5 a.m. to cook the 65 turkeys which will feed more than 800 people. A total of 75 volunteers from each church have signed up to volunteer for the dinner.
A traditional feast is planned, consisting of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, coleslaw and rolls.
Attendants for the dinner are asked to use the high school entrance. The dinner is free, and open to the public. For more information call 574-2900.
