Town of Clio has Thanksgiving dinner

Town of Clio has Thanksgiving dinner

It was a time of food and fellowship during the annual Clio Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 23.
Mayor Joe Kinney said the gathering was about peace and harmony with one another.
For the first time, the event was held at the former School of Discovery.
“It’s good to be here and to space out a little bit and have a joyful time. We welcome you here to fellowship with one another.”
Eva McRae, an organizer of the event, started it five years ago with a vision from God.
“It’s not so much about food,” she said. “But it is about coming together to show love to one another.”
It can be shown in many ways through helping  those in the community in need of love.
“It is all about love but to have love, you must have a relationship with God,” McRae said.
During the program, Black Girls Make a Difference dance group performed. Rev. Mildred Brown of New Beginning Apostolic Faith Church read the scripture. Apostle Daniel White of Refuge of Deliverance did the prayer. Annie McCall sang a song. 
Rev. Jeffery Hunt of Hickory Grove Church gave the sermonette.
He talked about how the attitude of the world today is people are looking to themselves instead of to God.
“People are forgetting where God brought us from,” Hunt said.
He remembered working in the tobacco fields in the middle of the day and how hard the work was.
“To know you are blessed is to be thankful,” he said. “God made a way for you. God placed you to be here.”
Hunt said Thanksgiving isn’t just once a year.
“It is not only today but every day,” he said. “We need to walk together in a time when people are trying to separate us.”
Adrian Kinney talked about the Stop the Killing Rally at 2 p.m. Dec. 7 at Lindsay Park.
The event is to bring awareness to save lives.
“A lot of our youth are getting murdered for no reason whatsoever,” he said.  “I need for you to bring your grandsons, nephews, and all the youth. “
Law enforcement, ministers and loved ones of slain persons, and victims will speak at the event about violence and how to stop the violence.
“We would rather do this than stand over the caskets of our loved ones,” Kinney said.
He is organizing the event with Jason Bingham.
