Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and Trinity Bakery owner Charlene Townes is hoping to inspire a more community-focused love of the holiday with her second-annual Thanksgiving Potluck.

The event will take place at the EPEC from 1-3 p.m. on Thanksgiving, and is open to anyone in the community; whether they’re just tired of cooking a big meal for the holiday or tired of spending it alone.

Townes welcomes people to bring something to the potluck.

“If anyone out there wants to donate a turkey or ham, I would be thrilled,” she said.

But above anything else, she recommends those attending bring their favorite Thanksgiving dish.

Besides food, volunteers are needed to help serve, set up, organize games for the kids, or help in any other way they can.

No music is set up for the event so far, but if there are any willing volunteers, they would be a welcome addition, Townes added.

She wants to use this event to help spread the feeling of family inherent to the holiday to the community at large. “It was just a good way to bring people together, and that’s what I want to do,” she said.
