There was no looting, arson or violence on Thanksgiving Eve in Barnesville as the community came together to worship and give thanks.
A throng of celebrants filled the First United Methodist Church for the community Thanksgiving service and heard a rousing sermon from Rev. Craig Ogletree. About 500 souls were at Depot Plaza for the Illumination Celebration that followed and was highlighted by the arrival of Santa.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from all of us at The Herald Gazette and barnesville.com where we cover your lives and community as no one else can.
