Give Thanks. Eat Pie.
by Luke Osteen
Local, part-timer, person-just-passing-through, committed church-goer, genial agnostic, confident atheist, gobbler of turkey, vegetarian – everyone is invited to join their neighbors at the Highlands Community Thanksgiving Supper, set for Tuesday, November 19, at Highlands Rec Park.
A project of the Town of Highlands and local churches and community organizations, the meal is free (although donations are welcome) and represents a marvelous opportunity to connect with neighbors and forge new friendships. It’s also a means of considering our many blessings and a chance to remember the less fortunate.
Prepared meals will be delivered to anyone in need. If you or anyone else would like a meal delivered, call Highlands United Methodist Church at (828) 526-3376.
The supper represents one of those events on the calendar that’s open to everyone – The Olde Mountain Christmas Parade, Downtown Trick or Treat, the Community Dinners held Tuesdays at the Community Building. They keep us close to one another and help to foster that incredible Highlands spirit that animates so much of life here on the Plateau.
