MONTICELLO – This is the ninth year that the Monticello Interfaith Council has held its community Thanksgiving meal to members of the area.
On Saturday, interfaith council volunteers prepared meals of turkey, stuffing, vegetables and cranberry said free to the community.
Wanda Monroe, a council volunteer, said helping out if self-fulfilling by giving back to the community.
“It’s always a feeling that’s very self-rewarding when you can help somebody else and to see these people enjoying something the community has brought together,” she said. “There is so much going on in the world, this is a good time to come together and be thankful for the little things.”
Interfaith Council President Scott Cooper said their event, being held since 2014, is a “safe place to socialize and be part of the community.”
