Kiwanis Club of Jackson hosts community dinner

The Kiwanis Club of Jackson, along with other community volunteers, sponsored a community dinner Nov. 17th.  While the Kiwanis club participated in the past two community dinners at the Lakewood library branch, this was the first time the club independently sponsored it.

The club donated several turkeys, 50 pounds of mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, vegetables, homemade turkey soup, cranberry sauce, biscuits, drinks (apple cider, iced tea, coffee, and soda,) and several desserts.

A baker's dozen club members cooked and served the food.  They were helped by members of the Jackson Helping Hands Committee, Key Club members from Jackson's high schools, TAB members, and friends of the Kiwanis club.

Members of the John Wesley Stern band performed during the dinner.

About 120 people from the community came out.  The left overs were brought to the people living in Tent City on Cedar Bridge Avenue in Lakewood.
