Mayor's 1st Annual Thanksgiving Dinner, 1-3pm

Mayor Bill Edwards, "Here at city hall, I will be providing over 200 pounds of turkey, but will need help from the community on other dishes, I was thinking of a pot luck style dinner. I am doing this because when I campaigned for this position I did meet a lot of folks in need and also a lot of seniors home alone during the holidays and felt this would be a good chance for us to get together with all of our friends and neighbors for a great meal."
