The local Alliance of Churches is expecting several hundred guests today for the annual community Thanksgiving feast at the Lakeview Center.
"We just know that in this economy that there's a lot of people that are struggling and trying to manage very tight budgets, who may not have the means to provide a nice Thanksgiving banquet type meal for their families because of money concerns," said Doug Powell, an alliance volunteer.
Dawson County Emergency Services urges residents to change the batteries in their smoke alarm when they change their clocks as daylight savings time ends Sunday.
"Having a working smoke alarm reduces your chances of dying in a fire by nearly half," Dawson County Emergency Services Deputy Chief Tim Satterfield said. "Batteries in smoke alarms should be replaced twice a year. Change your clocks, change your batteries."
