14th Annual Thanksgiving
From press & staff reports
Workers are busy continuing the week’s preparations for the Winston County Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
The group will be preparing to feed 1,000 people or more which will include senior citizens, sick and shut-ins, those less fortunate, and tornado victims, if funds will allow them to do so.
The opening service begins at 10:30 a.m. They invite all pastors and evangelist to please come out and be a part of the opening service.
The community has been helpful in providing resources for the Thanksgiving Dinner. In that spirit, the Eiland Middle School Junior Beta Club donated a check for $100 in support of the luncheon.
Community service hours will be granted to high school and college student. Haynes and other organizers are seeking volunteers for the event. Members of the Eiland Middle School Junior Beta Club have committed to dedicating their time to volunteer during the luncheon.
Even over almost two years after the April 28 storms, the luncheon group is extending an invitation to those who were affected by the tornado who would like to receive a good, hot meal.
