A Community Thanksgiving in Georgetown

For the second year in a row, the City of Georgetown, Texas was there to make Thanksgiving a day where everyone who wanted a meal got one at no charge.  No strings attached, other than showing up.  If you couldn’t make it where the meals were being served, for health or transportation reasons, volunteers brought the meals to you.  500 meals were served by over a hundred volunteers, overseen by Alycia Tandy, owner of Do Yourself a Flavor Catering.   Community Thanksgivings were held in the 1990s, into the early 2000s, but then went away.  Tandy felt they needed to come back, leading the effort to do that in 2016.   While anyone was served, it was obvious from my visit to the community center today that some folks wouldn’t have anything if not for this group, which also included the Salvation Army of Williamson County, C.J.’s Catering, the Georgetown Police and Fire Departments and the Georgetown Public Library.   It was an inspiring day of photography for my friends at the Williamson County Sun.
