Since our first Thanksgiving dinner in 2009, these get togethers have truly evolved into “community” events. Everyone is welcomed and many people from all walks of life have become friends. It is a time to get together, meet others and share a meal. Our dream for these dinners is to grow them into community wide “family” dinners just like you would have in your own home…just a bit bigger. Where everyone does their part and then sits to enjoy each other and the food at the same time.

Because of all of the support from our donors, partners, volunteers and patrons, these dinners are evolving into just that.

Please come join us at the Community Dinner. Please spread the word.
