On Monday, Nov. 23, the Rotary Club of Dawson County will host a free drive-through Thanksgiving dinner open to all in the community.
The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Veteran’s Memorial Park gymnasium. The menu will consist of turkey, ham, dressing, gravy, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, rolls and dessert.
The annual event is usually a community gathering where citizens can sit and eat together, but it will be a little different this year due to COVID-19. Instead of sitting down to eat together at the park, attendees will remain in their vehicles and drive through the line. They will be asked how many meals they need and the meals will be loaded into their cars for them to take home to enjoy.
All meals will be served to-go and ready-to-eat, with no further preparation or heating required.
Christie Moore, a chair of the event, said that even though the event will look different this year, club members are still excited to host the event and anticipate a good turnout.
“Our Rotary Club is thrilled to continue the tradition of hosting the annual Thanksgiving dinner for Dawsonville and Dawson County,” Moore said. “In order to ensure the health and safety of our community, the event will occur in the drive through format, but we hope community members will still join us.”
