(Neb.)-Crawford Eagles Club To Host Meals For Veterans, Thanksgiving
(CRAWFORD)-There are two special events taking place at the Crawford Eagles Club in November. The first is the club’s annual Veterans Appreciation Supper on Sunday, November 10th. Member Marietta Moffatt-Richardson says this year there are several volunteers who have offered to come play music for those in attendance from 4:00-6:00 p.m. The supper itself will be served at 5:00 p.m. On the menu, a roast beef buffet will be featured, complete with potatoes, gravy, salad bar, and dessert.
Moffatt-Richardson says everyone is welcome to come, and veterans eat for free. Everyone else’s meal is donation-based. She says she’s not sure how long the Eagles Club has been sponsoring the supper, but it’s been for at least 6 or 7 years. She said members decided “we just wanted to do something to show our appreciation to our area’s local veterans.” She adds that the local club has approximately 275 members, although many no longer live in the area and yet still keep their membership active.
The second event in November is the free annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Crawford Eagles Club on Thursday, November 28th. Moffatt-Richardson says everyone is invited to this meal as well, especially those who do not have other plans or who don’t feel like cooking a fancy meal. She says there are several widows and widowers in Crawford who may not have another place to go for a good Thanksgiving meal, so the Eagles is the place to come. The club will provide the meat, potatoes, dressing, and a few salads and desserts, she says, and those who would like to contribute to the meal can bring a salad or dessert if they would like to, but they certainly don’t have to. The meal will be served from approximately 11:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Moffatt-Richardson says the Eagles have been sponsoring a Thanksgiving meal for many years, easily 20 years at least. She says it is a nice way to have a place for people, both young and old, as they come together to celebrate the season.
