St. Paul A.M.E. Church To Hold 20th Chattanooga Area Thanksgiving Community Dinner Nov. 16

Friday, November 8, 2019

St. Paul A.M.E. Church, 2514 Williams St., will hold its 20th Chattanooga area Thanksgiving Community Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 1 p.m.  This event is open to the public.

Donations are being accepted at the church from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Sundays. Drop donations in the donation boxes located in either atrium.

"This it how it works," officials said. "Bring donations of non-perishable food items and receive one free dinner per person. There is no limit on what you can donate, but we have to limit the dinners to only one per person.

Just know that when you give you are helping someone to have a happy Thanksgiving. If you want to donate turkeys, celery, onions, bell peppers, stuffing, etc. you are more than welcome to do so."  
 
This event is sponsored by the Chattanooga Area Youth Department of the AME Churches (YPD - Young People Department): Allen Temple AME; Bethel AME; Joseph Chapel AME; St. James AME; St. Paul AME; and Warren Chapel AME.

"If you know of someone that could benefit from a food basket, let me know." said Ramona Pratt, Chattanooga area YPD director. "I will need for you to get their name, address, phone number and how many family members are in their household."

A Lack Of Civility At The Women's Rally

The behavior of our local radical left women was abusive and uncalled for. The next Woman’s Rally and March should be lessons in common decency and civility towards other women.

The women before me that broke the barriers in male-dominated professions would be embarrassed ... (click for more)
