For the eighth year in a row, a community Thanksgiving dinner is planned at Morenci Area High School. The event is open to anyone in the area seeking a traditional Thanksgiving meal and some holiday companionship.
The Morenci Ministerial Association, joined by several community volunteers, plans the annual event and serves the turkey and dressing meal at no charge. Donations are appreciated to help defray the costs of the meal.
In past years, those attending the event have ranged from families getting together to single people who wouldn’t have enjoyed a full Thanksgiving spread on their own.
Meals will be delivered to individuals not able to get to the school. Reservations for those needing delivery of a meal, as well as those planning to eat at the school, should be made by calling Jim or Judy Heiney at 458-6869. Reservations must be made by Nov. 20 to help with planning.
Anyone willing to volunteer helping with the project—preparing food, setting up tables, cleaning up, etc.—should call Rosemary Dickerson at 458-7511 or Renée Schroeder at 458-6829.
