GLENS FALLS -- The annual Hometown Thanksgiving Dinner, a fixture in the greater Glens Falls area for some 25 years, will be served at Christ Church Methodist, at the corner of Bay and Washington Streets, on Thanksgiving again this year.

Meetings for volunteers are being held at the church, at 4 and 7 p.m. Wednesday. Each person may sign up only for himself or herself, and only for one task.

The Hometown Thanksgiving dinner is sponsored by local volunteers as a holiday experience with food and entertainment. The dinner is served free to anyone wishing to attend, but especially those unable to celebrate with family or friends.

Thanksgiving dinner will be served from noon to 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day; anyone in need of transportation to the dinner, or wishing a dinner delivered to their home, is asked to call 636-9679.

    Does anyone know if kids are aloud to help out? Or if there is a certain age you have to be? This is something I would like to help out with, with my children.

    I volunteer at this event every year and I encourage people to give it a try. You wouldnt believe the joy you can bring to someone in need just by wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving. This is a great cause to help the less fortunate in our area!

    listen2me-Why would you say that? I don't understand your logic.

    I supported the Open Door at the meeting the other day. Unfortunately I'm unable to volunteer on Thanksgiving Day because I am working a 12-hour shift during the day then. If I were not working I would be volunteering at the Dinner though.

    You sound like somoene that could use some community service work yourself though. Get out and volunteer. You might find that you enjoy it and it certainly would help with your problem toward the poor.

    Should be no shortage of volunteers. Look at how many supported the soup kitchen! I bet not one of you will volunteer.
