BELOIT - It's not too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving. The Overflowing Cup, in conjunction with The Morning Star Lodge #10, WB Kennedy Lodge along with area churches, businesses and other organizations, invite anyone seeking a hot meal among friends to attend its free meal from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28 at The Morning Star Lodge #10, 229 W. Grand Ave.

"We will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey with all of the trimmings. There will be music both during and after the meal. This is an opportunity to count your blessings by getting involved in this Stateline community opportunity," said Overflowing Cup Pastor Dave Fogderud.

Fogderud noted organizers still need donations of food, supplies and volunteer help.

For more information on donations, people can contact Diana Fogderud at 608-365-0365. For information on volunteering, people can contact Wendy Laird at 815-389-3203.

Dinner organizers already have secured donations from Pizza Ranch in Roscoe, the Great Lakes Commissary, Total Exteriors, Bound By Another Level Productions, the Church of Living Water and CSL Plasma Center, Laird said.

Culver's has committed to frozen custard for 300 people, area restaurants are providing food and Apple Hut is providing 25 bushels of apples, Fogderud added.

Beloit College will cook most of the turkeys.

Laird said volunteers can store some turkeys, but other dishes will need to be brought in for the day of the event.

Laird said the event brings in about 30 to 35 volunteers. Organizers ask for donations to feed around 300 people. Deliveries also are made to shut-ins.

Dave Fogderud said the dinner is always a fun occasion and people enjoy coming to hear live music.

"It's definitely a festive day," he said.
