Written by David Green.

Community Thanksgiving meals are planned in Morenci and Fayette this month, with each location offering a traditional meal with all the fixings.

Morenci

All area residents are invited to the high school cafeteria on Thanksgiving Day for a meal and companionship for the holiday. There is no charge, but donations are accepted.

To help with planning, guests are urged to make a reservation by calling Jim and Judy Heiney at 517/458-6869 by Nov. 18. Delivery to shut-ins is available by calling the same number.

Volunteers are needed to help with preparation, serving and clean-up. Call Rosemary at 458-7511 or Renée at 458-6829 to join the list of workers.

The meal will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Morenci Ministerial Association.

Fayette

Fayette’s United Methodist Church has scheduled a community meal from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.

Reservations are not necessary, but for delivery of meals, call 419/237-2974 to make arrangements.

“We’re all set with volunteer help,” said Rev. Kathy Currier. “We just need people to come and eat.”

Church members are planning another community dinner on Christmas Day.

  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
