The Sunday following this next one the Sunnyside Ministerial Association will host a community-wide Thanksgiving service for all residents of the Lower Yakima Valley.
The Sunday, Nov. 20, service will start at 7 p.m., and will be held in the Sunnyside High School auditorium. People of all faiths and denominations are encouraged to participate and give thanks for all the good in their lives.
Several pastors from Sunnyside-area churches will speak during the service.
There is no admission charge to attend the religious service, although freewill offerings will be accepted that evening. All proceeds, said Sunnyside United Methodist Church Pastor Pat Beeman, will be given to local food banks.
The Thanksgiving service will be a bilingual gathering for both the English and Spanish speaking residents of the community.
