Held at St. Vincent De Paul, the First Presbyterian Church of Central Point sponsored a turkey dinner for those in need. It’s the 15th year of an annual free turkey dinner.
Patrons were served a warm meal along with lively music from the Old Time Fiddlers.
“I’ve always been a person concerned about hunger in the community and in the world,” said Pastor Terry Graunke of the First Presbyterian Church. “This is certainly a way to help those who have kind of a tough time, especially around the holidays, to have a good meal and a good time.”
The goal of the church was to feed 200 people at the event.
