(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Thanksgiving came a few days early for those at Wesley United Methodist Church.

On Saturday, the church held their annual Thanksgiving Dinner fundraiser. The event offered a classic Thanksgiving meal of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, dinner rolls and dessert.

Volunteers at the church said they cook about 60 turkeys for the dinner, but all the work is worth the effort.

"We're very blessed. We have a good crowd and we have good workers. We have fun and it's tiring, but it's a good tiring thing," volunteer June Ungles said. "We're just thankful that we can do this."

The church also offered a take-out option for people. In total, the event fed about 1,200 people.

Anyone who came out could also participate in a silent auction and listen to local live music.

Last year, the fundraiser raised about $12,000. All of the proceeds go back to the church.

Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s on Friday and another disturbance will give us a chance for a few sprinkles across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. We dry out and temperatures will gradually climb back into the 50s and 60s by the weekend.
