American Legion meals
American Legion Post 16, its auxiliary, other military organizations and volunteers will deliver Meals on Wheels dinners on Christmas since the William N. Pennington Life Center (senior center) will be closed.
Sailors, current and retired military personnel and community members wishing to deliver meals or prepare meals for delivery should arrive at the hall, 90 N. Ada St., between 8:30-9 a.m.
Once volunteers arrive at the hall, they will pack food into containers and then drive different routes within the city limits and in the county to deliver hot meals to the area senior citizens. The American Legion normally seeks about 30 volunteers to help with the preparation and/or delivery.
The American Legion post also provides the volunteers and donations to buy turkeys and all the fixings.
Their annual Christmas dinner for the community is from 11 a.m-1 p.m.
