Organizers of a communitywide dinner on Thanksgiving Day are seeking volunteers and monetary donations. Community Thanksgiving will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22. Event organizers plan to serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal, free of charge, to 500 people.
The Community Thanksgiving will be served at two Georgetown locations:
- Georgetown Community Center, 445 E. Morrow St.
- Georgetown Housing Authority – Activity Learning Center, 210-B W. 18th St.
A sit-down dinner, as well as boxed take-out meals, will be served at these locations.
Community Thanksgiving is being planned and supported by the City of Georgetown, City of Georgetown Police and Fire departments, Do Yourself a Flavor Catering, CJ’s Catering, GW Pyro, and The Salvation Army of Williamson County.
The menu for the dinner includes turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, rolls, and sweet potatoes. Water and tea will be served.
This event is free and open to the public. There is no ticketing involved. Meals will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis at each location.
Monetary donations to help fund the event can be made to Sertoma Club of Georgetown, with “Community Thanksgiving” in the memo line.
