A look back at Thanksgiving

Nov. 28, 2009-– Thank you to those who made Thanksgiving Day special for those in need of food and fellowship. Through a community-wide effort, volunteers decorated tables, made placemats, prepped and cooked a Thanksgiving Meal at Austinville UMC and St. Luke’s UMC that served people across this area. On Thanksgiving Day, hosted at Austinville UMC, more than 200 volunteers (from over 23 churches) showed up to deliver and serve approximately 900 meals to those in need throughout this area. We delivered around 782 meals to people in need of a Thanksgiving meal in Decatur, Hartselle, and Falkville. Volunteers served 75 female inmates at the Morgan County Jail. Another 56 male inmates, along with some local families joined us for a Thanksgiving Meal. We are beyond blessed to have such a generous and loving community who so graciously come together as “One in the Body of Christ” to serve those in need during the Holidays, which can be a sad time for so many. St. Andrews Presbyterian Church also provided all the Thanksgiving ingredients for 26 households so they could cook for their own families on Thanksgiving Day.   (Neighborhood Christian Center)

Nov. 24, 2014–Pies in Hartselle come in a variety of flavors depending on what you would like for your event.

During the holiday season, Hartselle pie shops can often see an influx of requests and orders for pies and desserts. After all, what is Thanksgiving without pie? Order your Hartselle, Alabama pies ahead of time for your family gatherings and office parties to avoid the holiday rush. Furthermore, pies in Hartselle will have that delicious homemade taste to them because many pastry shops in that area are family owned.
