Nc'town has successful Thanksgiving meal

Editor:

A wonderful evening was had by all at the Newcomerstown Community Thanksgiving meal sponsored by the Ministerial Association, Journey's End Ministry and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

A full turkey meal was served to 480 people and a program was put on by many local churches which included music, dramas and a video.

A special thanks to our local honor guard and their generous donations from the VFW, Vietnam Veterans, American Legion and Denny Ross.

In total, we raised nearly $1,100 for use in the food pantry.

Food was donated by Journey's End and various churches and the turkeys were cooked and delivered by Bakers. Over 100 volunteers helped to put together the meal. Particular thanks to Joy Snyder and the Christ United Methodist Church crew as well as Jody Groff for her organization.
