Community thankful for meal at Trinity United Methodist Church

For over 20 years Trinity United Methodist Church has provided a free Thanksgiving meal to the community. The tradition was started by the Lions Club and the Methodist women. The tradition continues with contributions of time and donations from all over the community. Coordinator Ginna Fall said last year they served 370 people and this year she hopes to serve around 400. “The more people the better,” said Fall. “We would love to run out of food.” Karen Reed, who is the kitchen supervisor, kept the food moving.

Gifting

WHAT IS A GIFT?

A gift is an irrevocable transfer of an asset without consideration from one person to another. A gift may be of tangible assets such as real estate, jewelry and physical objects or of intangible assets such as shares of stock, investment accounts or even insurance policies. Of course cash is great. 

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY IRREVOCABLE?

Irrevocable means that the gift is complete and you will not get it back. That sounds simple, but there have been many parents that thought that what they gave could still be theirs when they wanted it back. It is important to understand that it is no longer yours and if your child chooses to misspend your gift there is very little you can do except never give again. It is a serious decision which should be carefully thought out with full knowledge and understanding that you will never have access to that property again.
