Volunteers are gearing up for the popular community Thanksgiving dinner. Held at the Bolin multi-purpose room, the Thanksgiving community meal has proven popular since its inception six years ago.
The meal will begin about 12:30 p.m. and will include a deep fried turkey, roasted turkey and smoked turkey, as well as ham, barbecue pork loin, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, homemade fresh rolls and plenty of salads. The meal also includes relish trays and dessert favorites, highlighting a wide variety of fresh pies.
The meal is made possible through the efforts of local volunteers Jerroll and Barb Rittal, Chip and Ginny Mintz and Frank and Judy Cramer among others and through the donations of individuals and local businesses. The Prairie County Chamber of Commerce has donated three turkeys to this year’s meal.
The community Thanksgiving meal will be held on Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. Prize giveaways will also be offered. Deliveries are available. Sign up sheets are located at the Prairie Community Hospital, clinic and community center. For more information or to donate to the meal please call Barb Rittal at 635-5863.
