Community readying for Thanksgiving potluck

The 18th annual Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner is scheduled for 12-2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 24 as usual at the Coupeville Rec Hall. Come share a meal and some friendship.

Organizers supply the donated turkeys, ham, bread and gravy and guests bring a side dish to share, their dishes and utensils and a desire to share a meal with the community. Guests can also go home with soup bones and leftover.

Organizers are always looking for volunteers to donate a pre -cooked turkey or ham, be the “official” gravy maker, help with set up and take down and of course, the all -important job of carving the turkeys!

If you would like to help with this uniquely Coupeville event, email curlytop9@gmail.com or call 360-678 3396.
