Thanksgiving dinner welcomes everyone

The second annual Ganges Community Thanksgiving dinner will be held at Meaden Hall on Monday, Oct. 9.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m.

“If you, or someone you know, would otherwise be alone this Thanksgiving or unable for whatever reason to enjoy a traditional dinner, please join us,” said Marilyn Guille, one of the event’s organizers. “This is an alcohol-free family event, and anyone is welcome.”

Guille and co-organizer Jane Patterson have secured commitments from Country Grocer and Thrifty Foods to contribute, but are still looking for volunteers to help on the day of the dinner.

Last year’s event at the Harbour House fed almost 200 people, and organizers are expecting a similar turnout this year.

For more information, or to donate, sponsor or volunteer for the Community Thanksgiving dinner, call Guille at 250-931-1312.
