What a wonderful Community Thanksgiving dinner my husband and I enjoyed!
With our kitchen and bathroom remodeling project in full swing, we chose to attend Christ United's Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings: turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, scalloped corn, candied sweet potatoes, broccoli and cheese, cranberry sauce, apple salad, orange jello/pineapple salad, dinner rolls, variety of desserts and beverages. Also, macaroni and cheese for the little ones!

What a great church project for anyone! Thanks again to those who worked so hard ahead of time and Thanksgiving Day to provide this wonderful meal!

Cindy Cornelius,
Hampton
