Invite All To Share Thanksgiving Dinner

To The Editor:

Thanksgiving Day is only a month away. So, the Metcalfe family would like to invite you to join them for their sixth annual free Thanksgiving dinner. The dinner will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, 2009, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. The dinner will be held again at the Lemasters Community Center, just off Steele Avenue, in Lemasters, Pa.

Last year, we served 753 meals, and we’re wondering if the 1,000 mark is in the near future! So, if your house is just too small to get the 46 family members together for a holiday meal, come to our house to eat together. If you want to get dinner out of the way, so you can enjoy your football games unhampered by stacks of dirty dishes, come to our place and you won’t miss a single touchdown. If your daughter’s fiance is coming for Thanksgiving, eat with us, so you will have more time to plan that embarrassing slide show.

We would also like to extend an invitation to those who would like to assist us with this project. Any donations ... especially when it comes to homemade desserts ... would be appreciated greatly. Also, if you would like to help out but are too busy on Thanksgiving Day, there will be a potato peeling party the Wednesday before the dinner, starting at 7 p.m. There will be more to do than just potatoes, so feel free to come.

This dinner is free of charge to anyone and everyone who would like to attend. All we ask is that you bring a healthy appetite, and give us a call at 717-328-2366 for reservations, so we know how many to prepare for. Free delivery is available within the Tuscarora School District for senior citizens, and those who are physically unable to join us. Just call us at the above phone number so we can get directions to your home.

We must send out a special thank-you to Gordy Schlotter and the Chambersburg Cardinals football team for their support by having a food drive. Some members and mascots will be on hand at the dinner for a meet and greet, and to help.

Hope to see you on Thanksgiving Day!
Mark, Jayne, Erica and
