Grant County residents have options this Thanksgiving. If you don’t feel like cooking or paying for that big meal, there are free community Thanksgiving dinners in both John Day and Prairie City.

In Prairie City, it’s happening at the PBC Teen Center sponsored by Prairie Baptist Church. It’ll be a traditional Thanksgiving meal at 1 p.m. this Thursday.

In John Day, it’ll be at the Elks Lodge from 1 until 4 p.m. The lounge will be open with football on TV, pool, shuffleboard and card games. Seniors, veterans, and disabled persons who can’t attend, can request delivery by calling 541-575-1824.
