MEREDITH — Thanks to the generosity of the Hart's Turkey Farm Restaurant the Annual Mae Hart Thanksgiving Dinner will once again be served on Thanksgiving Day for those in Meredith and surrounding towns who are alone or who simply wish to celebrate this meaningful day with new friends. This special meal is a long-time tradition thanks to the generosity of Mae Hart, the family matriarch, who promoted community spirit and believed no one should eat alone on Thanksgiving. Her generous family has continued this tradition since the mid 1970's.
Hart's Turkey Farm Restaurant has partnered with the Meredith Parks and Recreation Department to provide this wonderful meal which will be served at the Meredith Community Center at 12:00 noon. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.
Anyone wishing to volunteer to help serve the meal should contact volunteer coordinator Kristen Eldgidge at 279-5568.
