LAUREL HILL — About a hundred voices lifted in traditional American Thanksgiving songs Wednesday evening during the north county community's traditional Harvest Supper.

For Angela Holifield and her son Landon, 5, it was their first holiday feast in their new home. The military family moved to the Garden City community just weeks ago.

"Everyone has been so friendly to us," she said as she helped Landon scoop a serving of cornbread dressing onto his plate.

Several area church members attended the supper, hosted this year by First Baptist Church of Laurel Hill.

The church's pastor, the Rev. Mike McVay, expressed his happiness at seeing people from different denominations gathered together and contributing to the bounty that awaited.

"We need to start getting along together down here because we're going to spend eternity together, and it may not be where we want to be spending eternity if we can't get along together while we're here," he said to a chorus of "amens."
