The Morgan Community Center will host a Community Thanksgiving dinner from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 22. The Bedford City Commission voted to allow the use of the facility for the event.

A letter published in The Trimble Banner suggesting a community eventfor everyone who either could not afford dinner or was alone and had no one to spend the day with initiated interest the event, according to Deputy City Clerk Rita Davis.

“As soon as the letter was in the Banner the phone wouldn’t quit ringing. Right now I have six churches committed,” she said. “They will provide the food, help serve, help set up and the city’s not out a dime.”

Davis said the meal is open to anyone in the community who wants to come. Planners are hoping for about 200 people to partake of the meal, Davis said.

“I think it’s going to be a great thing, especially for people that are less fortunate,” Mayor Russell Clifton said.

“We would like for people to call and tell us they’re coming so we could plan ahead,” Davis said. “We’re going to have it in the gym.”
