OXFORD - The Church Women United (CWU) of Oxford have been sponsoring the annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner (formerly held at St. Joseph's Church) for 38 years. The dinner was prepared and distributed as a take out only at St. Paul's Episcopal Church Parish House.

Many volunteers, as always, lent a hand to make the dinner a great success; and those people deserve thanks for this labor of love.

The CWU are very thankful for all 52 of the wonderful volunteers who filled in whereever they were needed, the businesses and individuals who provided food, and to those who enjoyed the traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner. The homemade dinner, with all the trimmings, was served to 225 diners!
