Free Thanksgiving Dinner offered

When Pigs Fly BarbeCue in Fairlea has announced its first ever “Giving Back Day,” to be held on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27. The owners, Michael Sheridan and Kellen Leef, said they wanted “to give something back to the community which has been so good to us.” They will provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal at their Fairlea location, including roast turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry salad, pumpkin pie, and all the rest of the trimmings free to anyone who shows up.

“There are many people in our community who are either alone, or unable to prepare themselves a traditional Thanksgiving meal,” said Leef. “We want them to share this joyful and thankful occasion with us. So, if you know of such people, ask them to come by and join us for good food and fellowship.”

Doors open from 12 noon – 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day (or until they run out). They need volunteers on the 26th and 27th to help prep, cook, serve and clean up. They are also accepting donations of food or cash so that they can provide this service to as many people as possible. Please call 304-645-4BBQ and ask for Kellen to get on the volunteer schedule or make a contribution. Excess contributions, if any, will be donated to the local food bank. When Pigs Fly will return to normal operations on Friday, Nov. 28. When Pigs Fly Barbecue is located on U.S. 219 in Fairlea. Learn more at or by calling 304-645-4227.
