In under a month, idea grows into dinner for more than 500
An idea grew into a feast for 515 people in less than four weeks when Western Wayne gathered for its inaugural Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Nov. 14. Doors opened shortly before 6 p.m. People poured into the Lincoln Middle/High School cafeteria. For more than two hours, they kept coming, joining a line along the room’s walls as they moved toward the serving line. Friends chatted amiably with friends and then sat down for a meal.
