Thanksgiving feast for community has new site this year
By Jan Rahn
The annual community Thanksgiving meal will be held at the American Legion Hall in Grant at noon on Thanksgiving Day due to last year’s large turnout and the need for more eating space.
Due to the huge gathering at last year’s community feast, the site for this year’s annual Thanksgiving Day dinner has been moved to the American Legion Hall in Grant rather than the Perkins County Senior Center as in past years.
The only change is the venue—the rest of this special holiday gathering remains the same: great food and community camaraderie on this day of great thanksgiving.
The annual community dinner is set for noon on Thursday, Nov. 26, with Bob and DeeAnn Tatum and Perry and Toni Weichmann organizing the event again this year.
The two couples have put together an enjoyable meal for the community for several years. The dinner is open to everyone in the area. Those choosing to attend are asked to bring a vegetable dish, salad or dessert—everything else will be furnished, such as the turkey, potatoes and gravy, stuffing, dinner rolls and other traditional dishes.
To make the meal a success, volunteers are always needed to help prepare ahead of time and to help things run smoothly the day of the dinner.
To volunteer in making the 2009 Thanksgiving Day Community Feast a success, call the Tatums at 352-4574 or the Weichmanns at 352-2609.
