Mr. Ed’s Community Thanksgiving Dinner will continue again for the 26th consecutive year.
The public is encouraged to think of friends and neighbors who may be in need of a meal or companionship on Thanksgiving Day.
The dinner will begin with a prayer at 11:00 AM on Thanksgiving Day at the Tomah American Legion Hall located at 800 Wisconsin Street. Chip Thompson, son of the late Ed Thompson, stated, “We are so grateful to be able to continue my father’s work of spreading companionship with a meal on Thanksgiving Day. This dinner started because when my dad was down, out and alone, and he knew he needed to make a change for anyone else that may be feeling the same way. We want to keep his traditions of giving and community alive.”
Volunteers will be needed to help serve food, seat guests, prepare deliveries, deliver meals and share conversation. Monetary donations will be accepted the day of, or can be mailed to: Mr. Ed’s Community Thanksgiving Dinner, 119 Alyssa St, Tomah, WI 54660. Donations of pie can be dropped off at the Tomah Chamber and Visitor’s Center located at 310 N Superior the day before Thanksgiving or at the American Legion on Thanksgiving morning.
Deliveries will be available for those who are shut in, or working on Thanksgiving Day. To request a meal delivery, please call 608-343-4956 by Monday, November 19th.
Questions regarding Thanksgiving or donations should be directed to Tina Thompson at 608-343-4956 or 608-372-2166.
