Charlestown Legion To Host Free Thanksgiving Dinner
Anyone without a place to spend the holiday is welcome to join the festivities.
Charlestown residents without somewhere to spend Thanksgiving are invited to come celebrate the holiday at the American Legion.
A free meal will be served from 11:30 a.m. until about 1 p.m. at the J.W. Conway Bunker Hill Post 26 American Legion headquarters, 23 Adams St.
The annual Thanksgiving dinner has been a Charlestown tradition for more than 25 years and has been organized for the past 20 years by Bob and Carol Sweeney.
Those who join in the festivities will enjoy the usual Thanksgiving fare, including turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, various side dishes and dessert.
Local volunteers will help prepare and serve the meal, and community donations help fund the event.
The volunteers also package up meals to deliver to Charlestown residents who are unable to leave their homes on Thanksgiving Day. If you or someone you know needs a dinner delivered, call Bob Sweeney at 781-526-9440.
