- Thanksgiving dinner
The Washington County Youth Service Bureau/Boys & Girls Club ushers in the season of giving with a free community Thanksgiving meal. In the Bethany Church galley on Main Street in Montpelier, dozens of volunteers spend the week slicing, dicing, baking, boiling and steaming food for hundreds of Turkey Day visitors, who fill up on just-carved poultry plus homemade stuffing, squash, potatoes and gravy. Pies and other treats make for a sweet ending. Delivery available.
46th Annual Free Community Thanksgiving Dinner: Thursday, November 22, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m., Bethany Church, Montpelier. Free. Info, 229-9151.
