Here's your chance to be thankful a few days early.
For a decade, Ray of Hope Mission has hosted a free community Thanksgiving the weekend before the holiday. This year, the chef duties are being handled by Ray of Hope Mission founder Frank Rinaldi. Rinaldi has been plagued by health problems over the past few years. This year, he is cooking and will attend the meal. "We're grateful he's here," said Allie Schaller, who does community development for the mission.
