OGDENSBURG -- The Knights of Columbus and its Ladies Auxiliary will hold a free community Thanksgiving Day dinner. Dinner will begin at noon and continue until all are served, and will be held at the Knights’ Club Rooms at 721 Hasbrouck St.

“This will be our twenty first year for this program, and we have had remarkable turnouts of people who are just looking to share a holiday with friends and community neighbors” says Nelson Woods, Grand Knight, “the outpouring of friendship and community support is really heartwarming.”

Volunteers are needed to provide transportation and service at the event. Volunteers are also needed for Tuesday evening, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. to help set and decorate the hall. Those wishing to volunteer should contact the club at 393-7990.

Monetary Donations and donations of food such as canned cranberries and stuffing are also appreciated. Checks can be mailed to the Knights of Columbus at 721 Hasbrouck St., Ogdensburg, 13669, attention PGK Harry Lucchetti. Food may be dropped off between 4 and 8 p.m. Dessert donations are also welcome and should be dropped off at the Club Rooms the night before or the morning of Thanksgiving.

“Last year the Knights and the community volunteers prepared and served over 600 dinners” said Woods, “so we know there is a real need.”

Delivery will be available. Reservations for both sit down and delivery meals must be made by Nov. 20. Reservations and arrangements for transportation can be made at 393-7990 after 4 p.m.
