Reminder: Community Thanksgiving Dinner at Catholic Church

Here it is the middle of November and that means that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. The plans for the annual Greer County Thanksgiving Dinner are once again starting. The meal will be held at the Sacred Heart Parish Hall in Mangum on Thanksgiving Day. There will be turkey, ham, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, gravy, rolls, cranberry sauce plus drinks and pie. Once again we will be delivering meals throughout the county on Thanksgiving Day or you are welcome to come to the Parish Hall and eat.
