Community Thanksgiving dinner


To The Editor:
The Greater Margaretville Community Thanksgiving Dinner is set for November 22, and we hope that anyone who is alone or feels a need for community during this holiday joins us at the tables in the Purcell Center of the Sacred Heart Church.

It isn’t too late to make plans to join us. Either call with your reservation so that we know how many to expect, or simply show up between noon and 2 p.m. for a traditional Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings. If you don’t want to eat in, you can even get take-out meals.

We are asking for donations from our community to help fund the meal. It costs about $600 for the food supplies, and we are asking for your help to cover that cost. The meal preparation and serving is done by volunteers, and we hope that others are willing to express their thanks through donations. Excess funds are given to the Community Pantry.

Donations can be sent to: Interfaith Council, PO Box 702, Margaretville, NY 12455-0702. In advance, thank you.

Richard Dykstra,
Interfaith Council
