CHESTERTOWN - The Community Thanksgiving Dinner, a relatively new but treasured tradition in northern Warren County, is set for Saturday Nov. 20 at North Warren Central School, and the public is cordially invited.
In recent years, about 300 people have attended the event for good food, socializing and visiting with old friends and new. Annually, North Warren students, faculty, staff and administration all contribute money, time, effort and food for the free event.
The dinner not only brings people together in the school cafeteria for a sit-down meal, but dozens of take-out meals are also delivered to elderly shut-ins with students traveling quite a distance to deliver the food accompanied by a genuine smile. Back in the school cafeteria, students wait on tables, preparing plates full of food for citizens just as they custom-order.
Serving starts at 4 p.m. and lasts for at least two hours. Reservations are not mandatory, but would be appreciated. Call the school at 494-3015 extension 702 to make reservations.
