Help the food bank
The Eagles is sponsoring a chicken dinner for a donation of food and $5 to help stock the shelves of the Care & Share Food Bank.
Half of the proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the food bank, along with all of the food collected during dinner.
We have been taking food donations the month of August at the Club. And I am hoping we can get a truckload of donated food to help stock the food bank’s shelves.
The buffet style dinner will be fried, baked, or BBQ chicken, potato salad, baked beans and a dessert. This event is Sunday, Sept. 9, from 2 to 6 p.m. And everyone is welcome.
The Eagles slogan, “People Helping People,” demonstrates our desire to be involved with and support community projects. This is a worthy cause that will benefit many families in our local community. And this would be a great way to end the Labor Day week--a nice dinner and the opportunity to donate to the community at the same time.
