The Elks Lodge #1468, The Veterans Village and US Vets had their annual Thanksgiving Dinner on November 21st at the Elks lodge, in honor of the Veterans. The Elks have been putting on this event for over 30 years and always have the veterans on the committee to help organize it. Retired Army Veteran Steve Smith gave a short welcome speech while waiting for everyone to arrive and the food to get set up. The traditional Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings looked fantastic. They had between 75 to 100 people which dined and socialized, a great afternoon in honor of those that served our country. The Elks Lodge #1468 has numerous events throughout the year including Christmas in July, and Thanksgiving Dinners All Veterans that attended had a great time.
