'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Reaching out to their small community in a big way, members of New Beginnings Church of God in Everson will again offer a Community Thanksgiving Dinner.

The home-cooked dinner, in its fifth year, will be held from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The church originally launched the event when a church official felt members should have something for area individuals and families who would like to share a meal for the holiday.

“My husband had a vision that we should do this for the community,” event coordinator Silvia Fulton said of church deacon Ron Fulton. “We usually get between 85 and 100 people who come.”

Church members will begin meal preparations on Friday and finish on Saturday.

“The ladies of the church do all the cooking,” Fulton said. “We'll finish up on Saturday morning before we serve that afternoon.”

The dinner is free for anyone who wants to join them.

Fulton said they see some familiar faces year after year while welcoming new friends who come to break bread with the group.

There are no income guidelines to participate. Anyone who wants to experience a great, home-cooked, holiday meal and all the trimmings with a group who wants to make the experience a happy and memorable one may attend.

The meal was made possible by donations.

“We are just a small church, but this is something that we wanted to do,” Fulton said. “It's always a nice day.”

The church is located at 910 Painter St., Everson.

For information, call Fulton at 724-984-1842.
