Holiday Food Baskets - Prior to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, if you feel you are going to be in need of a holiday food basket please give me a call to have your name placed on the list.  If you are single or even have a family Harvest Pilgrim puts on a holiday dinner for anyone wishing to join them.  It is a nice way to be with others for the holiday.  Please give me a call when the time comes and I will be able to give you more details such as the time and location of the Holiday Dinner.
