The 22nd annual pre-Thanksgiving dinner is slated for next weekend

An annual pre-Thanksgiving tradition returns next Sunday.

The men of Friendship Baptist Church will sponsor the 22nd annual Sandra Harbin Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner Nov. 19, at 1:00 p.m. at the Toccoa-Stephens County Boys and Girls Club on Whitman Street in Toccoa.

Randolph Sherman is one of the organizers of the event each year.

He said that the dinner is free for senior citizens 55 and older.

Carry-outs will be provided for those unable to attend.

Meanwhile, following the dinner, Sherman said they will once again have the Wendell Sherman Memorial Gospel Concert at 2:30 p.m., also at the Boys and Girls Club on Whitman Street in Toccoa.

“Everybody is welcome,” said Sherman, who added the concert is free.

Sherman says that organizers appreciate all of those who help to put on the dinner and the concert each year.
