It’s time to talk turkey.

The 26th annual community Thanksgiving feast will be held Thursday, Nov. 25, with a gathering of friends, family and neighbors from around the community and beyond who wish to spend this day surrounded by food, laughter and camaraderie.

The event at noon on Thanksgiving Day will be held at the American Legion Hall in Grant at the corner of Third and Washington.

Volunteers to pull off this fantastic feast are needed, so please call organizers Bob and DeeAnn Tatum at 352-4574 to lend a hand in cooking turkeys, peeling potatoes, making stuffing, or a number of other tasks prior to mealtime.

Everyone is warmly invited to take part in the meal—the only requirement being to furnish a dessert or side dish to share.

The turkey, stuffing, cranberries, potatoes and gravy, vegetable, rolls and drinks will be provided. No need to bring plates or silverware either—all tableware will be provided.

Last year’s attendance was 180, said DeeAnn Tatum, with an expectation the number will be even greater since the year before there were 150 who shared the meal. She said it took 11 turkeys to feed last year’s eaters, compared to eight the year before.

No plans for Thanksgiving? This community event is a way to share a great meal and a special holiday with others who don’t plan to travel, who don’t want to cook, who might not have family close by, or who want to bring the family to an enjoyable time of fellowship and food.
