Thanksgiving In The Park Thanksgiving In The Park
The wonderful annual tradition of Trinity Episcopal Church hosting the “free to all” Thanksgiving in Heritage Park has grown into a heartwarming blessing for all who participate, whether just coming for a meal with friends, serving, donating a part of the meal, playing music, or creating crafts with the children. All are welcome! Children are welcome to come for crafts and games as well as the bounce house, empty nesters, folks who just want to be with friends and neighbors, and those who are just passing by. Join us.

If you’d like to donate something, just a single can of cranberry sauce or a whole turkey, or if you’d like to work for just 30 minutes, or all day, every single gift is appreciated. For details, call, 475-2177.
