Community Thanksgiving meal needs volunteers and donations

The Free community feast is scheduled for Thanksgiving Day. 

For the 22nd year on Thanksgiving Day residents of the Port Clinton area are invited for a turkey dinner at Trinity United Methodist Church, corner of Adams and 2nd Streets, from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. To celebrate the holiday, volunteers and committee members create a festive atmosphere and prepare a buffet of traditional foods for all to enjoy.

The committee continues to invite new volunteers, as well as those who have assisted in past years, to help in the Fellowship Hall.  There has been a turnover of established volunteers and as a result the committee especially needs help this year. Volunteers work in the kitchen and in the dining hall overseeing table service, greeting, coordinating deliveries,  food preparation and clean up. This event is made possible through monetary and food donations from the community and by the time given by local volunteers and committee members.

All are welcome to the free Thanksgiving Feast. The committee encourages area residents to bring families and friends, to come alone and sit with our groups and join in celebrating this important time of togetherness. Reservations are never required.

To volunteer, to donate food (hams, turkeys, canned sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, carrots are needed), or for more information call Ginna Fall  by Friday, Nov. 16 at 419.967.0185.

Every year, volunteers deliver meals to area shut ins. If you know a shut-in who would enjoy a hot turkey meal for Thanksgiving, please contact Ginna Fall by Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 419-967-0185.
