2017 is the first year this event became known as the Scott Scripture Memorial Thanksgiving Dinner. Well over 100 meals were delivered to elderly folks throughout the community along with the meals served at the Birch Street School. Captain Merrill did a great job filling some very large shoes. At the end of the event a plaque was donated in honor of Captain Scott Scripture. Thank you to everyone who donated supplies or time, you are integral parts of our community!
