The local Salvation Army Church, along with Pizza 249 Catering, served turkey with all the trimmings for free to anyone who dropped in for the occasion.
"Giving people a place to feel community on the Thanksgiving Weekend, that's what it's all about," remarked administrator Janessa McAuley, who added the local Sally-Anne also has a lot of reasons to be thankful this year.
"We sure do. There's so many new things that are happening," she told Drum FM. "As we start to grow and move forward, the amount from the community is overwhelming, so we're very thankful for that."
The hosts for the dinner were Captains Ben and Isobel Lippers, who arrived in Drumheller in early July.
"They're doing wonderful: they've taken the whole task by the reins and they've just been doing the best they can," commented McAuley. "We're so grateful to have them; they're a great pair."
