John Boyer (above) wheels a cart of freshly baked apple dumplings that he and Charlie Kelly baked in the kitchen of the Columbia United Methodist Church on Tuesday. The 500 dumplings that were baked recently are being picked up by anyone lucky enough to have pre-ordered. Some orders will be delivered. Proceeds go to the organ fund for maintenance of the church's keyboards.
On Thanksgiving Day, the kitchen staff will arrive at about 4 a.m. to begin cooking 18 turkeys for the day's Community Thanksgiving Dinner, which is free and open to the public.
