With the efforts of Forsyth County churches, civic groups and nonprofits, many families in need were able to enjoy a traditional turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. Some families got an early start Wednesday at The Place of Forsyth County, where Creekside United Methodist Church volunteers served up turkey and dressing casserole, green beans, corn pudding, salad and bread. “It’s kind of an appropriate meal for the day before Thanksgiving,” said Rick Cooke, kitchen manager for the church.
