Approximately 275 people enjoyed the first annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner

The first annual community Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, sponsored by the Generous Hearts of Augusta was a huge success. About 275 people enjoyed plenty of smiles, warm greetings and a free delicious meal with all the traditional trimmings. Approximately 80 carry-out boxes went out and 25 dinners were delivered to homebound residents.

"This certainly not about us (the organizers). It's about the community and wanting to do something for others," Modlin said.
