St. Mary’s to Organize Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving table

Volunteers will deliver food or provide at drive-through

St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring, with support from other local congregations and community groups, plans to serve a community Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 26 through home delivery and a drive-through lane.

The community meal, which was first organized by Tina Merando at the Our Lady of Loretto parish more than 20 years ago, continues under the leadership of Tara Flagler and Vinny Tamagna, a senior warden at the church.

“This year may be different, as we ask you to bring a [donated] cooked turkey to the Parish Hall,” Tamagna said. “The need is there and we will deliver.” The menu will include stuffing, soup, cornbread, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green vegetables and dessert. Reservations are required by noon on Nov. 22 at bit.ly/cs-thanksgiving.

Volunteers will deliver meals from 10 a.m. to noon on Thanksgiving Day and there will be a drive-through pick-up from noon to 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

Besides cooked turkeys delivered to the church on Thanksgiving morning, organizers are looking for drivers and coordinators, as well as financial donations. To volunteer, call 845-337-0236 or email [email protected]
