WORTHINGTON – For the first time in almost 40 years, the Community Thanksgiving Dinner at First Lutheran Church in Worthington has been canceled.
According to organizer Terry Morrison, blizzards and cold have not stopped the dinner over the years, but COVID-19 has. In a news release, Morrison stated people have learned a lot about how the illness spreads, but there are other things that can also be spread – messages of optimism, strength, resilience and positivity.
Morrison asks that people use social media to spread these things by going to the Community Thanksgiving Dinner Worthington Facebook page and posting a reason you have gratitude or feel appreciation.
Morrison said they hope to be back in 2021.
