Arlene’s Bar B Que Served the community of Brownsville Thanksgiving dinner. “This is my first time doing this,” said Arlene Williams, owner. “I want everyone to enjoy the food.“
Determined to give back to the community, Arlene said that Brownsville deserves something special so she made up her mind that this Thanksgiving was going to be about Brownsville. “Brownsville is a good place and we should be able to enjoy things over here too,” she said. “It’s not a lot but you will be able to sit and have a good meal and enjoy the fellowship,” she said.
Approximately 200+ people came to enjoy the scrumptious meal prepared by Arlene and her staff. “With God’s help we plan to this again next year,” she said.
