CROWN POINT - Crown Point churches and businesses are again joining together to ensure that those in Crown Point who are alone or those who might not have the means to celebrate Thanksgiving will have a traditional meal.
"With the economy struggling, many of us came to realize that there are blessings that we can share to ensure that we, as a community, look to each other's needs," said Pastor David Hirtle of the Crown Point Congregational Church.
Plans are under way for a meal, consisting of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, squash, rolls and homemade apple and pumpkin pies to be served at Frenchman's Restaurant in Crown Point on Wednesday, Nov. 24.
As in years past, there will be a continuous serving from 4-7 p.m. There will be no cost for the community meal.
A planning committee will meet on Thursday, Oct. 14, at 3 p.m. at Frenchman's Restaurant. The committee will begin the process of ensuring that all necessary ingredients are available and prepared for this years feast.
"Whether you are a regular to this community event or simply have an interest in this year's plans, you are invited to join the process," Hirtle said.
