Com­mu­nity gath­ers for meal at Turner Street Park

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Sean Wil­liams [email protected]­

Cedar­town lo­cals spent their Satur­day din­ing on chicken, bar­be­cue, desserts, and var­i­ous other foods thanks to a free com­mu­nity meal held at Turner Street Park. Plates were given to any­one that showed up, and guests were free to pick their meal of choice.

Nu­mer­ous vol­un­teers worked tire­lessly to make sure there was enough food to go around, and fam­i­lies could be seen eat­ing to­gether, play­ing in the park, and lis­ten­ing to the mu­sic pro­vided by the loud speak­ers.

The event saw clear re­li­gious in­spi­ra­tion, with Je­sus listed as both the spe­cial guest and or­ga­nizer. Much of the mu­sic played was gospel or other re­li­gious hymns, and the meal was com­pletely char­ity driven.

This wouldn’t be the first event held at Turner Street Park, and those in­ter­ested in stop­ping by for fu­ture ac­tiv­i­ties can visit 254 Turner St., Cedar­town. There are din­ing ar­eas and a play­ground for those in­ter­ested.
