Please join us for our open invitation community Thanksgiving Dinner.

Bring friends and family or come alone, all are welcome regardless of circumstance
Please remember this is a NO CHARGE dinner put together by volunteers whose sole purpose is to help bring our small corner of the world closer together. The idea was years ago from a 10-year-old girl named Sarah Jean Gleason and it has been her opinion and observation that today we need to band together, help each other, and build new relationships to help strengthen our community.
Our belief is no one should be alone on Thanksgiving.
