For more than 20 years, the annual Thanksgiving Day Feast has been a public event put on locally to provide a Thanksgiving for those who otherwise would not have one. This is the 11th year the Ellis County Ministerial Alliance is sponsoring the event.
The Community Thanksgiving Feast will be Thursday at The Rose Garden Banquet Hall, 2350 E. Eighth. A meal will be served from noon until 1:30 p.m., and everyone is invited — no reservations needed. Those interested in volunteering can sign up by calling First Call For Help (785) 623-2800 or visiting www.firstcallelliscounty.com.
Delivery of meals to shut-ins also can be arranged by calling First Call for Help. Meals will be delivered between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Transportation to the dinner is provided by Access, and reservations must be made by noon Wednesday. Access can be reached at (785) 628-1052.
Tax deductible donations can be sent to: ECMA, PO Box 173, Hays, KS 67601.
