CLIO — A pandemic didn’t stop citizens of Clio from preparing and giving Thanksgiving meals to fellow residents.
Instead of the usual sit-down meal, the Town of Clio annual Thanksgiving Dinner was held Nov. 21 at the Clio Community Center with people driving up or coming inside to pick up to-go plates filled with turkey, ham, dressing, and other items.
Eva McRae, one of the organizers of the event, said it is held annually to give back to the community by having carry-out only.
Volunteers from the community and churches prepared the turkey, dressing, ham, and other items.
The goal was to give away 200 plates with sodas and desserts.
McRae wasn’t worried about giving the plates away.
“I just hope we have enough,” she said.
