Community Thanksgiving set

Organizers of the third annual Cabot Community Thanksgiving Feast are asking for help to serve to those who might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal, or face the holiday alone.

The free meal will be served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cabot United Methodist Church, 2003 South Pine St., Cabot, on Thanksgiving, Nov. 22.

The Cabot Community Thanksgiving Feast is staffed solely by volunteers, organizer Dane Moore said in a press release. "If it was not for our volunteers, we would not be able to do this for the Cabot community."

Last year, the second year for the feast, there were 463 meals served; estimates are that more than 600 are expected this year, Moore said.

Organizer Heather Moore said she wants people to know there will be a relaxing, home-like place to come for a Thanksgiving meal.

The Cabot Community Thanksgiving Feast is an independent Christian ministry, not associated with any church or denomination. The event is free, the meal will be available for eat-in or carry out.
