With support, encouragement and assistance from her friends Ann Robison, Blair Clement and Janet Dwelley, Judi Farley has taken the reins of the Thomaston Random Acts of Kindness Thanksgiving dinner.

The Thomaston ladies have been friends for years, and had thought doing a dinner like this would be fun – one day. When they read that “one day” had arrived, Farley contacted outgoing TRAK Chairman Prudy Netzorg and asked if the opportunity was still available.

When assured that it was, Farley quickly put the wheels in motion.

“Judi is doing a great job getting this dinner organized,” Netzorg said.

She added that regular diners won’t notice much different from the dinners of previous years, as Farley is following the same menu and activities, time and location.

"She is bringing contagious enthusiasm for the dinner," Netzorg said.

Netzorg said she and husband Phil couldn’t be happier to "pass the baster" to the ladies.

Thomaston’s Community Thanksgiving dinner will be served at noon at The Federated Church on Hyler Street. There will be games, cribbage and the jigsaw puzzle; music, food and "family.”

The organization invites local residents who may be without family to join together for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

"Thanksgiving is more than a dinner," Netzorg said in the town newsletter, "It is a family day, and we are striving to make the day a 'family' day for all who come by."
