Fairview Elementary serves Thanksgiving meal to those in need

FAIRVIEW, Tenn. -

A Williamson County School opened its doors on Thanksgiving, but not for class.

Instead, students, teachers and parents at Fairview Elementary helped serve a Thanksgiving meal to those who had nowhere to go on the holiday.

Eighty-two-year-old Hazel Hutcherson was among those who attended the Thanksgiving event.

"I'm enjoying it," Hazel Hutcherson said. "I like to see other people enjoying themselves too."

"I'm by myself so, no one really called me up to go out so I got the advertisement so I thought, ‘Oh, I'll see what happens next,'" Bruce Sander said as he enjoyed his meal at the school.

Those who came to eat at the school did not have to pay a penny and many hope it will become a yearly tradition.

"It's the brainchild of our food services director. He got all the food donated by vendors and it's staffed by volunteers and we just opened it up to the community to come have a Thanksgiving meal together," explained school Principal Joan Tidwell.
 
Volunteers and students served meals from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
