A bright and early Thanksgiving trot

South Boston News
A group of some 100 runners and walkers turned out bright and early Thanksgiving morning for the first annual Cornucopia Turkey Day Trot, a 5K that came with no entry fee other than the donation of canned goods and other foodstuffs for the needy. A carload of food was donated to Serving Hope, operated by The Worship Center.
