Duvall and Carnation community Thanksgiving Day Dinner--Now will deliver to the home-bound

   The free Duvall and Carnation Community Thanksgiving has expanded to include delivering meals to anyone who is home-bound in the Valley area. Community volunteers will arrange to deliver meals to people who are unable to attend the dinner in the hall.The Thanksgiving dinner will be served to any person or family in the Valley community who would otherwise not have a meal or companionship during the holiday.
   Turkey, dressing and all the trimmings will be served family style at Holy Innocents Church Hall, 26631 NE Cherry, in Duvall, from noon to 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26.
   Transportation to and from Duvall or Carnation will be provided to those who need it. To arrange for delivery of a meal or transportation to the hall, please call 425-788-1400 by Nov. 24. Some of the contributions thus far include: Rolls, stuffing and pumpkin pies from the Little Country Bakery in Duvall; fresh flower centerpieces and other decorations from Duvall Hand Crafters; the loan of dishware and tables from St. Vincent de Paul in Carnation and the partners of Carnation Starbucks will match funds collected in their cash donation can.
   "The community response to the all-volunteer dinner has been outstanding," said Barbara Browne, co-chair of the event. "We knew the generosity of our friends and neighbors in the Valley was great, and this just shows how right we were."
