Thanksgiving Outreach meal ahead Saturday
Rockdale’s annual Community Thanksgiving Outreach luncheon is set for 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Family Life Center of First Baptist Church.
The free Thanksgiving meal, with all the trimmings, will be provided to eat in, take out or will be delivered to ill, shut-ins and families without transportation.
To place a family on the delivery list, call Pam King at 512-543-5003, Vera Rivers at 512-430-0398 or Pearlie Mack at 446-6626.
Last year’s meal served 1,200 persons and drew more than 50 volunteers.
The annual event was begun by New Hope Baptist Church and was held in that church’s kitchen and fellowship hall.
It grew to include many congregations and was held in the New Salem Clubhouse the last two years.
Next week’s Reporter will be published on Tuesday, instead of the normal Wednesday, due to the Thankgiving holiday.
Deadline for all advertising and news copy will be 5 p.m. Friday.
