79th Annual Meeting & Banquet
No fee. No expectations. No agenda. Just an open invitation.
Gratefull is a free annual city-wide Thanksgiving meal, where everyone is invited to eat together at one long table in the middle of the street. Through Gratefull we are removing barriers and bringing people together from across social boundaries, simply to get to know each other and build understanding. In order to build a city that is an honest reflection of its residents, everyone should be invited to the table. What started as a one-time event in Chattanooga to bring people together has become a quickly growing tradition that spans multiple cities in the southeast, with interest from cities around the country. Mark your calendars for November 25 !
