Thanksgiving meal free to all


EATON — The 20th Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner will be served at Bruner Arena at the Preble County Fairgrounds in Eaton on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 26.

Every year, with the support of the Preble County community, the dinner serves hundreds of meals to local residents. The free meal will be served from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. It is a time for families and individuals to have a hot nutritious meal, and enjoy the fellowship of others as the holiday season kicks off.

The dinner is made possible through donations and help from many volunteers. The planning, preparation, set-up, clean-up etc. are all completed by volunteers but to make this happen sponsors help fund the meal costs.

Anyone who would like additional information, would like to volunteer, or who knows of someone who needs a meal delivered on Thursday, should contact the Community Action Partnership of Preble County at 937-456-2800, Ext. 202.

Thanks to the many volunteers who helped with the Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner each year, hundreds of people are served, either by eating at the arena, taking their meal home, or having a meal delivered to them.

Donations may be made to the Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner at any time. Make a check payable to Community Action Partnership Preble County and mail it to 308 Eaton Lewisburg Rd. Eaton, OH 45320. In addition, in the memo line indicate the donation is for the “Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner.”
