‘CAN’-DO ATTITUDE — Ryan Gray, a member of First Church of God on Miles Avenue in Union City, opened big cans of green beans in the kitchen where the Refuge Church meets at the Obion County Fairgrounds ahead of the Thanksgiving Soul Food Café meal that capped off the day’s community Feeding of the 5,000 event Nov. 21. He was there helping in the kitchen as part of a group from his church. The day began with giveaways of hundreds of bags of groceries and winter coats to those in need during Feeding of the 5,000, followed by an afternoon meal for Boys & Girls Club children and then the holiday-themed Soul Food Café to close out the evening. The events were sponsored by the Obion County Ministerial Association, many individuals and numerous churches throughout Union City and Obion County.
