New life for community Thanksgiving dinner; Volunteers working through COVID rules for take-out meal

GOOD OLD DAYS–The warm, familiar scene for the Bethel Thanksgiving dinner at the Knights of Columbus Hall greeted dine-in folks year after year. This was the last dinner served there in 2014 before the hall became unavailable. Efforts to resurrect the annual tradition are underway, although COVID is complicating things.

A long-standing local Thanksgiving tradition is returning to the community. For most of the last 20 years the Bethel United Pentecostal Church and a host of volunteers have sponsored a Thanksgiving meal for all who want to participate. Many shut-ins and those alone for the holiday enjoyed a huge turkey meal with all the trimmings, right down to the pumpkin pie.
