The Clinton American Legion is again taking up efforts to feed veterans and other municipal workers who cannot or do not have the means for a Thanksgiving dinner this year.
Tom Reddington leads the initiative through the Legion and says they look forward to this each year and will deliver meals for those who cannot pick up a meal.
Reddington indicates they are estimating doing 300 meals this year. The three veterans groups in the community help to fund these meals. He indicates they will continue to accept donations, preferably cash donations although food donations are helpful as well.
Reddington thanks the AmVets, the American Legion, and the Auxilary.
For more information, contact the Legion at 217-201-8622. It is a voicemail but Reddington asks that you leave your name, phone number, address, and a number of meals and if those meals will be picked up or if you need a delivery. You can sign up and the Legion, Peg's Grub and Pub (formerly The Wishbone) Nixon Manner, DeWitt Manor or Kleemann Village.
The Legion phone number is 217-935-5183.
