There was plenty for which to be thankful Nov. 13 for those associated with Literacy Volunteers on the Green.

Students and their families, tutors and advocates of the New Milford-based organization gathered that evening at St. John's Episcopal Church to enjoy its annual Thanksgiving celebration.

The traditional turkey dinner was prepared by students of the Community Culinary School of Northwestern Connecticut, also based in New Milford.
