Stocks fam­ily to host Thanks­giv­ing meal Satur­day

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From staff re­ports

This week­end the Nathan Dean Com­mu­nity Cen­ter is the place to be with the an­nual Thanks­giv­ing meal be­ing served by the Stocks fam­ily.

Satur­day’s event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. is free to the pub­lic and will fea­ture live mu­sic, gifts and face paint­ing for the kids and more dur­ing what prom­ises to be a packed hol­i­day meal.

Flore­ace Stocks, who or­ga­nizes the meal with her im­me­di­ate and church fam­ily an­nu­ally to give back to the com­mu­nity, said that along with serv­ing up their an­nual Thanks­giv­ing meal, they have plans to in­clude mu­sic, a give­away of toys to chil­dren who par­tic­i­pate, and much more. The main fo­cus will still be the an- nual tur­key din­ner with all the tra­di­tional sides.

“We do all the cook­ing as much as we can ahead of time,” Stocks said. “But be­fore we get there that day all the tur­keys and sides are ready.”

She said the an­nual hol­i­day meal will in­clude four dif­fer­ent groups to pro­vide mu­sic this year, with de­tails to come on who will be per­form­ing in the com­ing weeks.

God’s Lov­ing An­gels is also plan­ning a Dec. 9 trip to a Carters-vil­learea nurs­ing home to share the hol­i­day spirit with res­i­dents, and more in­for­ma­tion about that event is forth­com­ing as well. Do­na­tions will also be ap­pre­ci­ated to help with pro­vid­ing gifts dur­ing the event. For more i nfor­ma­tion con­tact Stocks at 678-719-1981.
