The Friedensburg Country Restaurant will sponsor a free Thanksgiving dinner this year on Thursday, November 26 from 12 noon to 1 pm. The meal is for anyone who does not have somewhere to go on Thanksgiving, and also for those in financial need. There are no age restrictions.
The restaurant's owner, Christopher Clauser, says they will serve a full Thanksgiving meal served buffet-style including dessert and beverage.
The meal will be served between noon an 1 p.m. Reservations are not required, but Clauser asks if you plan on attending, please call withh an approximate number of those planning to attend so they can better prepare.
Anyone who would like to volunteer to help prepare or serve the meal is asked to contact the restaurant.
Right next to the Friedensburg Country Restaurant you'll find C&C Candies and Country Store, which is also owned by the Clauser family. Homemade chocolates and other candies are sold right next to groceries and everyday staples. You can buy the candies already made, or pick up candy-making supplies such as molds and chocolate. They also make and sell homemade bakegoods. It is indeed one of Schuylkill County's more unique shops.
Their website says: "Candy making is quickly becoming a lost art, but at C&C Candies and Country Store, you can find everything you need to rediscover the delicious skill of homemade candies.
