Thanksgiving really seemed to sneak up on me this year. I think it was a combination of the summer weather so late in the year and the fact that Thanksgiving on the 22nd is the earliest Thanksgiving can be. Most of us are happily making our holiday plans -- buying our cranberries, getting the folding chairs out of the attic, eagerly awaiting our Thanksgiving entertainment of choice (parade or football game). But for some the 22nd will be just another Thursday. If you or someone you know is looking at Thanksgiving that way why not sign up for the Knights of Columbus Meal Delivery.
The Knights will be cooking and delivering Thanksgiving meals throughout Schuylkill County. To register call 570-516-9514, 570-628-3333 or 570-773-0627. Leave your name and phone number and someone will call you to get your information. You have to call by 5 pm on Thursday, November 15th (TOMORROW). Meals will be delivered between 10 am and 2 pm on Thanksgiving day and someone must be at the address to be delivered. Meals will not be left on porches.
If your dinner is all taken care but you want to help those who need a great Thanksgiving meal call the Knights and ask how you can help. They'll need help for the entire week before the holiday. Maybe you can help make someone's holiday a little brighter.
Want a lighthearted way to get in the Thanksgiving mood? Enjoy a free movie and popcorn at the Majestic Theater on Saturday, November 17 at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm). Hosted by the Pottsville Recreation Commission and sponsored by M&T Bank, this movie will be keeping with the season -- Free Birds a hilarious animated movie about two rival turkeys, time travel and the traditional Thanksgiving day fare.
