    Food was great at St. John Baptist on 8th street people serving was very hospitable made us feel welcome, the first words I heard was Happy Thanksgiving. Joe fisher (PAC) was there taking pictures. Some police activity was outside of the Church but had nothing to do with the Church or the people in attendance.
