GLENS FALLS - The organizers of the annual Hometown Thanksgiving Dinner, a 20-year fixture in the region, announced this week they need volunteers to sign up for work, and citizens to pledge donations.
The dinner will this year be held again this year at the Christ Church Methodist, located at the corner of Bay and Washington Streets in Glens Falls.
The Hometown Thanksgiving dinner is sponsored by local volunteers as a holiday experience with food and entertainment. The dinner is served free of charge to anyone wishing to attend, but especially those unable to celebrate with family or friends.
Thanksgiving dinner will be served from noon to 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Anyone in need of transportation to the dinner, or wishing a dinner delivered to their home, is asked to call the Hometown Dinner phone at 636-9679.
Organizers are again seeking volunteers to assist with the preparation and serving of the meal that will feed upwards of 1,000 people.
Advance sign up for volunteers is mandatory, and two sign-up meetings will be held at the church to ensure that everyone wanting to pledge their time can do so. Both meetings will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 4t - one at 4 p.m., the second at 7 p.m.
Volunteers are particularly needed to assist in the days leading up to Thanksgiving and to help clean up on Thursday evening and on Friday morning. In addition, the Hometown Committee is also seeking donations of cash, food, dinner supplies, and kitchen equipment.
