Eagles to Host Thanksgiving Dinner, Need Donations
William Bruso, Worthy Secretary, the Bennington Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie 1861, writes: We are
getting ready for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner for senior citizens, shut ins and the needy, to be held the day before Thanksgiving, on Wednesday, November 27. Last year we were able to serve over 1000 dinners through generous community donations. We turn no one away; our goal is to feed everyone who needs a warm dinner on Thanksgiving.
We are a non-profit organization, and are asking for your help. We thank you in advance for your donations, whether it be money, food, paper products, etc. We also need drivers to deliver dinners and people to fill take-out trays. If you are able to donate your time, that would be greatly appreciated. Make any checks payable to: FOE Aerie 1861, and send to 144 North Street, Bennington, Vt., 05201.
Please stop in and sign up, or come in on the day of the event. We start at approximately 11. For more information, or to drop off donations, call the Aerie at 802-442-9780.
