Traditionally a sit-down event, the 19th Annual Saint Andrew Thanksgiving Dinner became take-out only on Thursday.

St. Andrew Catholic Church volunteers and members of the Men’s Club not only purchased and cooked food that provided 550 take-out dinners but also 200 additional meals, which were delivered to the residents of St. Andrew Towers, said St. Andrew Men’s Club President Gerard Parnell.

This year, he added, the mood was somber due to the recent passing of Ray Herman, a long-time member of the men’s club and one of the original organizers for the event.

“Over the years, Ray’s commitment to the club, and its mission of hospitality, service, and fellowship, helped make this event into what it has become,” said  Pannell.

Although no one can predict what changes the virus will cause for next year’s event, Pannell is glad at least one change will occur: it will be named in honor of Ray Herman moving forward.
