BRAMAN — The Braman United Methodist Church will hold its annual Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday, November 7.
Numerous crafts, homemade pies, cinnamon rolls, fruit breads, home- canned fruit, vegetables, pickles, baked goods, jams and jellies, and other items will be on sale in the foyer starting at 4 p.m.
Dinner will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. It will include turkey, brisket, dressing, potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, cranberry sauce, homemade pies and rolls, coffee, and tea. The cost is $7 for adults and $3 for children 4 to 11, with no charge for children under 4. Patrons will not have to stand in line for carry-outs.

In addition, there will be a blue and white crocheted afghan with snowflakes, and a special wall hanging with a list of “What Cancer Cannot Do” honoring those who have battled the disease.
Other items include a beautiful Christmas wreath, a wall hanging in patriotic colors, several machine-quilted pieces, a pink and gray baby quilt, two machine-quilted throws, a quilt with spring flowers on a pink and green background, and a carpenter’s star in burgundy and navy.
