The Sibley First Presbyterian Church will be having a Thanksgiving Meal on November 24th at noon. Jackie Kannegieter tells KIWA what they will be serving at the meal.

She says there is no need to RSVP as they will have plenty of food available. Kannegieter says this meal is open for anyone who finds themselves alone this holiday.

There will be no pick up meals available as Kannegieter says the purpose of this meal is for people who are alone to spend time with other people.

A lot of communities have not gotten back to holding their meals due to Covid-19. If your community isn’t listed it may not be a bad idea to reach out to the chamber or to your church and find out if that is the reason.
