Are you prepared for Turkey Day?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and in the past week or so we've seen so many organizations come together exuding a sense of community and thinking of others as they gathered food to share with those who might not have a Thanksgiving without the help of the community

We've heard of turkey drives and collections of non-perishable items and we're not finished yet.

We've also heard of inflation and cost increases and shortages and that has got to mean more people will fall through the cracks.

But the way Maine prepares for Thanksgiving is to think of others. To make sure that all of us have a chance to at least have a Thanksgiving meal.

If the true meaning of Thanksgiving is to be thankful maybe we need to make sure that every single one among us gets to feel the same way and be thankful for something that most of us think of as a simple thing - a meal.

Here is hoping fewer people miss out on things to be thankful for, like Thanksgiving dinner.

Can you help?

Tomorrow if you're going to be in the Old Town area, Old Town Hannaford is hosting the Old Town public safety departments’ Turkey drive to help RSU#34 and area food pantries to help local families in need.

If Old Town Police chief Scott Wilcox is there, I'm sure he will say hello and thank you  And thank you to Old Town Fire Department’s Chris Baker.

Thank you for making Thanksgiving something to be thankful for more and more in our community
