Bong Center to host Free Thanksgiving Dinner for Veterans

The Richard I Bong Veterans Historical Center would like to say thank you to our Veterans this Thanksgiving by providing a FREE meal on Thanksgiving Day.

The Center can feed up to 100 people and would like to invite those that have nowhere to go this Thanksgiving to enjoy the holiday with us. There will be turkey, ham, numerous sides, and dessert.  Watch the football game on our large screen and enter to win door prizes.  Pick up orders will be available.  An RSVP is required.

In 2018 the Center started the dinner as a way to give back to the veteran community. “We wanted to see if there was a need last year for a meal like this and we were amazed at the turn out.” said John Gidley, Education and Outreach Coordinator.

In addition to the dinner, the Center will also have Christmas cards on hand for those that would like to fill out a few to send the troops who are far away from home this holiday season.

This event is made possible by the hard work and dedication of volunteers and a generous donation from the American Legion Post 435.

To RSVP or for questions, call 715-392-7151.
