The Terwilliger Community Association hosted a meet and greet Thanksgiving social Monday, Nov. 9, at the Veterans Foreign Wars Post 1873 on Bailey Road.

Thanksgiving staples were served, including turkey, macaroni and cheese, salads, freshly baked bread, rolls, potatoes and pies. Neighbors met neighbors and shared stories and caught up with each other.

Sharon Evans is president of the nonprofit association, with Bud Elmore as vice president, Tabitha Dawes as treasurer and Patricia Erwin as secretary.

Lorraine Elmore, who has been part of the TCA for years, said, “It was really nice to enjoy great food and wonderful company as usual.”

The Terwilliger Community Association, along with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1873, tends the building where both organizations meet, as well the grounds around it. It includes the volunteer fire department building on the same parcel.

“Please feel free to join us for nothing but good food and laughs each second Monday of the month,” Dawes said. “Dues are only $10 per year per person which equates to about 78 cents per meal with your side dish. The association provides the main course, and sides are welcome from members. The TCA helps support VFW post 1873, so support them both.

“The Terwilliger Community Association is a nonprofit organization that has been in existence since 1948. You don’t have to live in the Terwilliger area to be a member – we welcome everyone. Come join us,” she said.

The TCA is a social group, hosting monthly potluck dinners at the VFW building at 59011 Bailey Road, in Terwilliger.
