The annual Lindsay Community Thanksgiving Dinner is set for Thurs., Nov. 26, Thanksgiving Day, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., according to John Collins.
The dinner will be held at Calvary Baptist Church, located at 410 W. Chickasaw in Lindsay, BUT it will be handled a little differently this year.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 issues, this year’s Community Thanksgiving dinner will be delivery and carry-out only.
“While we do enjoy your company, your safety means even more to us,” Mr. Collins explained.
“Donations are greatly appreciated. Usually 500 or more people are being fed at this event; some years many more,” Mr. Collins went on to say.
An account has been set up at the American Exchange Bank of Lindsay for the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Donations can be taken to American Exchange Bank, at 402 S. Main in Lindsay, or arrangements can be made to pick them up, as well.
“We will need volunteers to help Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving in prepping the food, along with volunteers for Thanksgiving Day,” Mr. Collins continued.
Those wanting to volunteer their time or donate food or money may contact Mr. Collins at 405-756-7217. Orders may be placed the day of the dinner by contacting Mr. Collins, or the church at 405-756-2781.
