We hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving!!!!

This week’s announcements are largely the same as last weeks:

Our annual “Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving” event in conjunction with Meals on Wheels will be Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 26th) beginning at 7:30am, and should finish by 11:00am. This year we are expecting to provide a minimum of 550 meals for those in need. As usual, it will be downstairs in the Howard Ballroom at the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum. Per COVID-19 guidelines, face masks are required.

KWTX will be hosting their annual Food For Families on November 20 from 7:00am-8:00pm. They are looking for volunteers for two shifts: 7:00am-12:00pm and 12:00-8:00pm. They need people to wrap pallets and prepare food during each shift. If you are willing to help or have any questions, please contact Mike Waldrop or Stan Parker (stanltt@aol.com, 254-749-4934).
