GOT TURKEY? This van was full of frozen-solid birds, ready for adoption and consumption on Christmas dining tables. Some 75 families in need of some help to make a Merry Christmas dinner got it at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church on Dec. 19. The church, located at 247 U.S. 331 N in DeFuniak Springs, opened its heart and hands to applicants, who received bags of groceries, supplemental items, and a frozen Christmas turkey.
