LAUREL HILL — The hosts of Laurel Hill's annual community Harvest Supper hope to top last year's record turnout that filled First Baptist Church's fellowship hall to overflowing.
Last year, nearly 28 percent of the city's 540 residents packed the hall. This year, the venue's church is also the dinner's host. Hosting duties rotate among north county churches.
The more than a half-century-old supper — Laurel Hill's senior residents can't recall when it began — traditionally launches the community's holiday season.
The Rev. Mike McVay, First Baptist pastor, said his church welcomes the opportunity to host the event, and looks forward this year to presenting the pre-meal Thanksgiving service.
