This year, our much needed Thanksgiving break will fall on the 27th, 28th, and 29th. After the stress of Istep and back-to-back testing, this five-day weekend is the perfect chance to relax and unwind. But, if you don’t have any plans for the holiday, there are plenty of things that the community and the surrounding towns are holding. So, if you’re looking for something to do in the community for Thanksgiving, such as a public dinner or community service, there are plenty of options.
Many churches, community non-profit organizations, and even the 4H fairgrounds will be hosting free dinners and events. If you’re interested in these events, be sure to check out the article dedicated to them in this edition of the newspaper.
There are also lots of options for volunteering around the community! The local food pantries have stated that they appreciate any and all donations around this time of year, and some are in need of volunteers to help take in donations, stock shelves, and donate food to people in the community. You can also help deliver meals to people in Indianapolis by volunteering with the Wheeler Mission charity, and you can also sign up to have a warm meal delivered to you on Thanksgiving via their website. All in all, no matter what your plans are for the coming days, try to do something to recharge and better the people around you
