Volunteering a Thanksgiving tradition

For 45 years, the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church has opened its doors on Thanksgiving afternoon to share a free meal with its neighbors. The annual community Thanksgiving Dinner welcomes everyone to the dinner, no matter who you are with or if you can pay. Leslie Youngstead and her husband Duane are celebrating an anniversary of their own at this year’s meal having coordinated the event for the last 10 years. Serving over 150 meals in an afternoon takes a lot of volunteers, something Youngstead says leaves people walking away happy.

Whether you are volunteering, stopping in to dine, or picking up a meal to go, Youngstead encourages people to contact them by November 25th to reserve their spot. 



Make your reservations at the church by calling 920-743-3241

Sign up to volunteer by calling Duane and Leslie Youngstead at 920-746-8643
