WADENA — All are invited to the 32nd annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday, Nov. 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the St. Ann's Parish Center.
The dinner includes smoked turkey from the BBQ Smokehouse, gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberries, vegetables, dinner roll and a pumpkin bar.
The volunteers making the meal invite people to join them in serving and or eating. If you are unable to attend, they can arrange delivery of meals to homes.
"This event has grown in size over the years the more volunteers the better," according to organizers. "We always have a great time preparing the meals, delivering meals and cleaning up. So do some volunteering and then enjoy the meal too."
There is no charge for the meal, but they accept donations of non-perishable food items or cash for the food shelf.
Call 218-631-4042 ext. 4 to volunteer, or call 218-631-2617 to request a delivered meal.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
