Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and it is evident in all the activities happening around town.

The third-annual Community Thanksgiving dinner is Nov. 16 at the high school.

The event is for everyone in Peabody and it’s wonderful to see everyone working together to make it successful. Additional volunteers, of course, are welcome.

The Peabody Senior Center will be closed Nov. 22 and 23 for the Thanksgiving holidays. We will have our Thanksgiving brunch Nov. 14. Everyone always enjoys the delicious omelet and coffee cakes that our head cook Kim Nellans prepares. Be sure to sign up early to be included in this wonderful start to the Thanksgiving holidays.

We will also have frozen meals available for the days we are closed, or for any other times that you may want them. Those who would like one or several frozen meals during the holidays should a call and tell us how many meals. We will be delivering them before the holidays so you will have them available.

Our new superintendent, Ron Traxson, will speak to us Nov. 27. He will introduce himself to us and tell us some of some of his plans for our community. This should be an informative meeting and we hope you will make plans to attend.

We are always anxious to have you stop by or call.
