This Thanksgiving Thursday November 25th Msgr. Loerke Council No. 1922 Knights of Columbus of Clintonville, with the assistance of the community, will be sponsoring the 33rd annual dinner for all area persons who do not have a place to share a meal that day.

A traditional holiday menu is planned including roast turkey, baked ham, potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, two vegetables, coleslaw, bread, beverages and homemade pies for dessert.
