Thanksgiving for many people isn’t the warm, jovial, family gathering envisioned. Rather, in some cases it is just another struggle to put food on the table and to dine alone.
The Derry Community Meals Network offers an alternative that features a traditional Thanksgiving meal and convivial company.
A free Thanksgiving Community Dinner is in the planning stages and is expected to serve 100 or more. The meal will be held at Derry’s Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, 1 Hood Road, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26.
