Clintonville offers free Thanksgiving dinner

Local residents are reminded to make their reservations for the 40th annual Clintonville Community Free Thanksgiving Day dinner, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Nov. 23 at the Clintonville Community Center, 30 S. Main St. The dinner is sponsored in part by the Knights of Columbus.

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

Reservations are requested by Friday so that organizers can plan for the meal. However, late reservations will be accepted, and everyone is invited to enjoy the Thanksgiving Day meal, with or without a reservation. Residents wanting a carryout meal should also call for a reservation, and they are asked to wait until noon Thanksgiving Day to pick up their meals. For reservations, call Dick and Jeanne Writt, 715-823-6477.

Knights of Columbus will hold a raffle, the proceeds of which will help fund the meal, along with donations from the community. Anyone interested in donating money toward the meal, making a pie or volunteering their time can call Rick Rauterkus at 715-250-0262.
