NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North Berkshire seniors home alone on Thanksgiving can sign up to have a turkey dinner with the trimmings delivered to their home. 
This year's "Thanksgiving for Seniors Program" will enter its 39th year serving the Northern Berkshire area.
It is designed to serve people 60 years of age and older who are alone on Thanksgiving and have no way of having a traditional Thanksgiving meal and who reside in Adams, Cheshire, the town of Florida, North Adams and Williamstown. The meals will be delivered by community volunteers on Thanksgiving Day between 11 a.m. and 1p.m. 
The program is provided and organized by local volunteers from the Northern Berkshire community and by the All Saints Weekend Meal Ministry. Funding for this program is provided by All Saints Episcopal Church and community donations.
This year, Shannon Daugherty, Aja Daugherty and Syid Uqdah will be spearheading the program. They have assisted with this program for numerous years and are ready to take the helm. The meal will be a traditional Thanksgiving dinner consisting of roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetable, gravy, cranberry sauce, roll and pumpkin pie. 
There is no charge for this meal but seniors who wish to receive a meal must make a reservation beginning Monday, Nov. 6, through Nov. 17.
To make a reservation: contact All Saints Episcopal Church at 413-664-9656 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday. If no one picks up, leave your name, address including town, and phone number on the answering machine. Please speak clearly so the office can call back to confirm your reservation.
The ministry is also looking for volunteers to deliver the meals on Thanksgiving Day; volunteer by calling the number above.
