Community Thanksgiving Dinner
Winter Hours for the Library
With the shorter days, we have found that very few patrons come into the library in the second half of the Thursday evening hours. Starting November 19th, the Library will be open from 3:00 to 7:00 pm on Thursday evenings.
There will be a free Community Thanksgiving Dinner in the Halsey Community Center on Thanksgiving, Thursday November 26th from 1-4:00 pm!Food is provided by donations from the community and the meal is prepared, served, set up and cleaned up by volunteers. If you want to help, Please contact Rella at (541) 369-2782. Even better -- please help us get the word out, everyone is welcome! Turkey and ham and stuffing and potatoes and gravy and cranberry sauce -- lots of sides and lots and lots of pie! Please join us, bring your family, and help spread the word that everyone is welcome. And if you know of anyone in Halsey who needs a meal delivered, please let us know.
