"I enjoy the fellowship, seeing people from other churches".

The Thanksgiving tradition that has been a staple in the Moorhead community for the last 22 years was canceled this year.

"It's a full Thanksgiving meal", Reis said of the turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, corn, buns, gravy, pickles, carrots, cranberries and pies served in a buffet.

For whatever reason people come down, Engelkamp said it's wonderful to be able to give back to the community. "It's nice that they do this". Jerry Moore, pastor, said.

"They plan for months for this", Waltenbaugh said.

The cooked turkey debacle was discovered by a staff member of the church's daycare center, who then alerted Lowe who contacted the Rioses.

When the family first started volunteering, he was in the military, and the family traveled a lot. "Because if you don't show the less fortunate that you love them, who will if the church won't?"

"The church is quite interested in serving the community, that's really what we're trying to do - provide a service in the community that's not fulfilled elsewhere", said Michael Johns, a project volunteer. "We will start with donations from the community to support the meals for next year so it starts when we end at three". We have to be truly grateful. "After today", he said, "a lot of these people are going back to hungry".

Patricia Baker of New Kensington said she was thankful for God, Jesus and "this church here".

"They're not all from the congregation, even though the vast majority are". "The food is great". Those in need register throughout the year to have the meals delivered to them.

Schultz estimated 200 volunteers worked to make this year's dinner possible.

"I remember having a conversation with an older woman a few years ago and she broke down in tears and she said she didn't know where she would go if this wasn't here", Beilke said.
