Pastor Dave Stammerjohn welcomed diners to to First Presbyterian Church in Martins Ferry to have their fill at the church’s annual Thanksgiving dinner.

Stammerjohn said the church has hosted the dinner for 13 years, feeding people who didn’t have food on their plate at home, needed a place to have a hot meal, or just wanted company on the holiday.

As the event began, Stammerjohn said around 125 to 130 people were expected to come through their doors. Dinner was served not only by volunteers from the church, but from all around the area who wanted to lend a helping hand.

Food was procured from donations over the previous year.
