For anyone looking for a warm home-cooked meal this Thanksgiving holiday, look no further than Bay St. Louis.
For 35 years, the Kelly family has provided a free Thanksgiving meal to the community. They will do so again this Thursday at Our Lady of the Gulf Community Center.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s meal will include dine-in, carry-out, and curbside services. If you are interested in delivery, call 228-223-7349 to reserve your meal.
Those involved in the tradition say 2020 is a year to be thankful for all blessings. Nancy Bosarge said, “I want people to remember this Thanksgiving we really need to be thankful to God for all that we have because it has been a hard year for everyone. We couldn’t do this without community and everyone calling me volunteering. We couldn’t do it without the merchants who generously give. The whole community just comes together. It is not just our family. We’re so grateful to everyone out there who just makes it possible.”
Meal times Thursday run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. More information can be found on the Kelly Family’s event Facebook page under the name Free Thanksgiving Dinner.
