— The annual tradition continues — but at a new location around the block this year.

A free community Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings will be held in Milford on Thursday, Nov. 23, for those who cannot be with their families or who are in need on Thanksgiving Day.

The meal will be prepared this year at the Church of the Good Shepherd, corner of Fifth and Catharine Streets in Milford, and served at noon.

The day starts at 9 a.m. for the volunteers who cook the food, since they first pack up and deliver turkey dinners and lots of extras to many people in meals on wheels programs or to anyone who finds it difficult to come out.

This program is made possible through the efforts of many people. Local businesses make donations to buy the food. The church provides its ample kitchen and hall. Boy Scouts from local troops help with set up and delivery. Many people will bake a pie or cake or cookies to donate for dessert. And area volunteers cook and serve the food in a pleasant family atmosphere. It is a yearly tradition for many, who will often join their own families for Thanksgiving dinner later.

If you know of anyone who would like a meal delivered or for any questions, call Steve Davis at 570-228-7699. The church number for calls on Thursday morning is 570-296-8123. Some transportation can be provided. All are invited to share in the food and fellowship at 12 p.m. Volunteers are always welcome.
