    Bring an appetite. You won't need anything else.

    Jerry Wiliams said, "Last year we served 700 meals and had well over a 100 volunteers working. The volunteers are of all ages."
    With the date several weeks away, Williams asks those who want to partake to reserve their seat now.
    "We are now taking reservations and have signs up everywhere we can think of. There are phone numbers so people can make arrangements for meals to be delivered. We are trying to get the word out countywide. We will pick up people throughout the county also. They just need to call and let us know whether they want to be picked up or have a meal delivered to them. We encourage anybody and everybody to show up. It's not just for the homeless. Anyone who wants fellowship on Thanksgiving is welcome; that's what it is for."
