There was enough turkey there to put everyone into a tryptophan coma for days. Sixty-one turkeys, 430 pounds of potatoes, 275 pounds of ham, 130 loaves of bread for filling, seven cases of corn and four bushels of apples for homemade applesauce were used for Thursday's meal at the Lemasters Community Center, plus hundreds of dinner rolls. That's quite a hefty amount for a Thanksgiving feast, but it's become a growing tradition for one Mercersburg, Pa., family since 2004. After drawing about 90 people that first year, close to 900 turned out Thursday for the eighth annual free Thanksgiving meal hosted by the Metcalfe family at the center.
