All are welcome to share a traditional holiday meal on Thanksgiving Day at the Fannin County High School. No reservations are required. Take-out meals are available for your homebound folks and folks working the holidays. Thanksgiving Dinner with smoked turkey and all the fixins is served from twelve to four with activities throughout the afternoon.
Come enjoy or perhaps share your talents during the Thanksgiving Music Medley “Open Mic” to help celebrate the holiday. Children’s Craft activities allow parents and grandparents time to relax after dinner and socialize with old, or make new, friends. The Silent Auction includes items donated by area businesses but you must place bids before 4:30 on items you’d like to have for yourself or others.
There is no charge to share Community Thanksgiving Open Table meal. Although donations are welcome, they are not required. Especially invited guests include singles, elderly, homeless, on-duty public safety folks, widows and widowers, local agency referrals, travelers and area visitors as well as the caring volunteers that help prepare and serve the holiday meal.
Community Thanksgiving Open Table is sponsored by the Good Samaritans of Fannin County, the inter-denominational association of area churches that raises benevolent funds to “Help us to help others, in His name“. Donations to an association of churches are deductible just as to a church or 501-c-3 organization.
