RHINELANDER - Many local businesses want to pay it forward this Thanksgiving. That includes Friendship House in Rhinelander.
Thanksgiving is all about tradition. For many people that means turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and spending time with family.
You could do that all today for free at the Friendship House. The chef said he likes having people enjoy on Thanksgiving.
"I love making a lot of different desserts. It is time for people to go out, splurge a little bit, and go off their diets. It's Thanksgiving" said Chef Chris Hazelton.
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for those around us. Chefs made 50-60 turkeys for the festivities.
Friendship House wants people to have a place to gather with their family. This is their 9th year providing a free dinner.
"It's good for us to be able to give back to the community because they are so good to us. It's a nice thing for us to be able to do," said Hazelton.
Friendship House served Thanksgiving Dinner from 11-3 p.m. They are open every day from 5:30-9 p.m.
