On Sunday, Nov. 15, from 4 -6 p.m., Forks Elks Lodge #2524 once again will host a dinner for Veterans living in the Forks area. This dinner is served free to all Veterans and widows of deceased Veterans, all others will be by donation. The dinner will be served at the Lodge located at 941 Merchant Rd. With what’s going on with the Covid virus there will be changes from the normal format.
This year the format will be a drive-through service like we used for the Fourth of July with a couple of changes. We will be passing out the meals at the front of the building under the covered area as it might be raining; bear with us if the line gets long. The menu will be sliced pork loin, mashed potatoes and gravy, and mixed vegetables and will be the same for each person. This event was started by Lodge member John Thomas, retired US Navy Viet Nam pilot, and we continue it in his memory.
As we want to make sure we are able to serve everyone, we are asking those who plan to attend to call either the Lodge at 360-374-2524 or Paul Hampton at 360-640-0296. If no answer at either number leave a message with your name and number of attendees. We look forward to seeing our Veteran friends, we promise there will be no speeches.
