Carrington, ND (CSi) The Carrington Community Thanksgiving Dinner began 22 years ago, as a project of the Carrington Ministerial Association. Dinner will be served at noon on Thanksgiving Day. This year’s dinner will be served at Calvary Baptist Church, 725 Main Street on Nov 24.

Volunteers are needed on Wednesday afternoon, November 23 at 1:00 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church, 725 Main Street. The team will peel potatoes (bring your favorite peeler); wrap flatware; setup workspaces, tables and chairs; and set tables with placemats and cups. Other volunteers will be boning and carving turkeys. If you would like to volunteer for a brief shift on Thursday, please contact Linda Schuster at 653-6028 to sign up.

The menu remains, roast turkey with home-made gravy. Mounds of real, mashed potatoes. The miracle that happens when 16 individually-prepared batches of stuffing are steamed together. Buttered corn. Glazed sweet potatoes with a touch of brown sugar. Crunchy coleslaw with a dressing recipe handed down through the decades. Refreshingly tart cranberry sauce. Fresh-baked buns. Cold milk. Hot coffee. And pie – more than forty of the most delicious pies that Foster County bakers can offer.

If you would like a ride or meals delivered on Thanksgiving Day, please contact Betty Montgomery at 652-3302 or 652-5034 (leave a message) by November 23.
