Bibb community centers to host neighborhood Thanksgiving dinners

Community and Bibb County leaders announced Monday that this year’s Thanksgiving in the Neighborhood program will expand to six Macon community centers.

The pot luck-style dinners will be held 5-7:30 p.m. Nov. 26 at Bloomfield Park, Frank Johnson Recreation Center, Freedom Park, L.H. Williams Community Center, Memorial Park and Rosa Jackson Center. Last year, the event was at four community centers.

At the dinners, volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food and coats that will be donated to the Mentor’s Project Community Pantry.

Frank Dixon, of the local civic group Macon One, said the dinners are not only a way for people to donate, but they also are a chance to foster community fellowship.

“We can all break bread in the same spirit,” Dixon said.
