More than 100 volunteers made Thanksgiving special for 600 diners Thursday in Park Rapids.

The annual community Thank Meal at Riverside United Methodist Church transformed the facility into a hub of activity all week.


Volunteers cooked 35 turkeys.

"We had 70 to 80 pies but they're still coming in the door," said volunteer Barbara Southward at noon Thursday.

A consortium of community churches has put on the meal for 28 years.
