Fordham church hosts Thanksgiving community meal

Joseph's Catholic Church did not host their annual Thanksgiving Dinner.

Pastor Neil Taylor said the meal was a way to bring the community together to celebrate the holiday each year.

"I think it only brings a community closer when you are working together". "It gives people that maybe don't have a place to go somewhere to be with other community members".

"There could be someone that really didn't know what they were going to do for Thanksgiving and had nothing to go to", McGrath said.

Moton says the church has spent the last decade building the annual tradition in the Dunean community.

"This is our sixth year, and it's a huge undertaking, but it is a labor of love", says Joann Davis, co-chair of the event and member of the Bethesda Baptist Church.

"I'm relieved", Johnson said as the meal was winding down Thursday afternoon. "We have faith that we'll be able to do the meal again next year". Everybody wants to do this.

"Trinity is just really happy to have people come and spend Thanksgiving with us and join our family if they need a place to be". Over 1000 of those meals were delivered to homes by volunteers. Past year more than 400 meals were delivered. It was enough to serve 800 people.

So by the 1960s, MI had one (Democratic) district with 802,000 people and one (Republican) district with 177,000. The newcomer on the court, Gorsuch, will also be under the microscope in his first full session.

The event first served about 70 people, Guza said.

"There's linen tablecloths", she said, pointing to the brown and orange cloths draped over the church's dozen round tables, "the tables are beautifully decorated, and [guests] can be served with the respect and dignity they deserve".

This year, they prepared 27 turkeys with sides and fixings, including homemade giblet gravey and sweet potato pie. I was homeless at one time sleeping on the streets and stuff.

Perhaps more importantly, no one dined alone - a key concept when the first meal was organized in 1968 by Pauline Johnson and the late Addie Spicher at the former East Topeka United Methodist Church.

Rhodes said the community meal was a way to reach out and help the community.

"We've gone and picked up people, especially seniors that have a hard time getting around". We have to be truly grateful. Woodson said she works long hours in Strasburg at the Hotel Strasburg and her parents live in Fairfax. He said they're off to a good start with donations in preparation for the dinner in December. "The food was good".

The church served turkey, ham, yams, vegetables, stuffing and desserts.
