‘To Ruston With Love’
An estimated 500 hungry mouths filled the Ruston Civic Center last week for a community wide Thanksgiving dinner.
The 20th annual event, known as “To Ruston With Love,” is hosted by First Baptist Church of Ruston and provides a free meal to anyone in the community who wants to come out. This year’s menu featured more than 50 turkeys, sweet potato casserole, various sides and numerous desserts.
“The desserts are made by church members, and there were probably a combination of 100 of them,” FBC Church hostess Sylvia Roseberry said. “The sweet potato casserole was made from scratch, and it took a couple of days to prepare in the church.”
