Community meal planned 2012.11.14

Written by David Green.

Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings at no cost?

It happens every year on Thanksgiving Day, courtesy of the Morenci Ministerial Association and a host of volunteers.

This year’s meal is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 22 in the high school cafeteria. 

Reservations are requested by Nov. 16 to help with planning. Call Jim and Judy Heiney at 517/458-6869 and let them know how many are coming.

The community meal was started several years ago as a means of providing a traditional meal for those unable to prepare one and to provide some fellowship for residents without any family nearby.

But it was never meant to exclude anyone and the event always draws an array of people who attend for a variety of reasons—chief among them to enjoy an excellent turkey dinner.

Everyone in the area is invited and there is no charge, but donations are always accepted to help with costs.

Meals can be delivered to those unable to attend. Addresses should be reported to the Heineys.

Anyone willing to volunteer with cooking, serving and cleaning up should call Rosemary Dickerson at 458-7511 or Renée Schroeder at 458-6829.

Please make reservations by this Friday.
