Annual Ellis County Ministerial Alliance Community Thanksgiving Dinner
Thursday, November 25, 2021
Guests may choose either individually packaged meals for drive-through pick up, or they may choose to dine with their friends & family at host locations around town, served "family style". Either way, the guests must register at the link (to the right of this area) from Monday, November 1 through Thursday, November 15.
Those not having access to the internet or those requiring meal delivery may contact First Call for Help at (785)623-2800, for assistance in registering.
For INDIVIDUAL meals: The registration site will ask for the name, phone number, & email address of every person ordering, as well as the number of meals. Then, the guests will select "pick up". They will drive through to pick up their meals from Noon to 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 25, in the parking lot of The Press, 230 E. Eighth. Please enter from the west. Volunteers will help individuals load their orders.
For FAMILY-STYLE at host locations: The registration site will ask for the name, phone number, & email address of every person ordering, as well as the number of meals. Then the guests will select a site that can accommodate their group. Then, the group just needs to arrive at the time indicated to enjoy a family-style meal in that setting. Please register early for "family-style" dining, as the host locations will fill up quickly.
The meal is being catered by "The Press" & will consist of turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, & a roll & butter. This year, as in the years past, the meals are free, offered as a ministry of the Ellis County Ministerial Alliance & with the assistance of generous co-sponsors. Free will donations can be made at the pick-up site & host locations.
As in years past, there will be bagged groceries available for individuals who desire them, available in the pick-up line at "The Press". There is no registration necessary for groceries.
