To the editor,

I want to thank all of the friends who pulled together yet again to make the 24th annual Community Thanksgiving Feast a wonderful experience for so many people.

The volunteers and donors who make the meal possible tell me repeatedly, “We are very blessed and thankful to be part of our neighbor’s Thanksgiving day.”

The warm greetings, great food, prayers at the table and hugs as we left completed a day when we give thanks to our Lord and Savior for His many blessings.

I want to thank all of the donors whose gifts paid for the food, HPU's Sodexho food service staff for preparing the meal, the Brownwood Bulletin and KXYL for promoting the event, Brookshire's and Wal-Mart for providing bags for meal deliveries, and most of all a special thanks to the volunteers who give their time to help others enjoy Thanksgiving.
