In the Route 44 area, the Omar Area Crime Watch will be having a very special Thanksgiving Dinner for the elderly, shut ins and the less fortunate tonight.
The OACW hopes to have their new Community Center up and fully functional by then for the dinner to take place.
Andy Clark from the Norman R. Miller Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 308 said the veterans group held their Thanksgiving party on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at noon at the Vet's Center in Henlawson.
Area veterans are invited to attend.
The group won't be resting on its laurels, however. NRM Chapter 308 will be ringing the bells for the Salvation Army in Man and Logan on Dec. 7, 9 and 10.
"We will also be having our Veteran' s Christmas Dinner on Dec. 15," Clark said.
President Chuck Puckett of the Logan Lions Club, Roger Ramey of the Kiwanis Club of Logan and Crystal Hensley of the Rotary Club of Logan were getting their organizations ready for an annual event that goes back many, many years, the Logan Civic Clubs Tri-Club Dinner.
The special event will be held at the Nighbert Memorial Methodist Church on Nov. 17 at noon.
Dr. Charles Wood a local educator and drug counselor was the special guest speaker.
Puckett explained that each year each of the three clubs takes care of one of the arrangements.
"This year, we provided the guest speaker while the other two clubs took care of the meeting place and the Turkey," Puckett said. "If you are a member of one of the three clubs, you are urged to attend and let your club know you are coming."
Puckett said he would like to put together a "Civic Group Summit" to look into ways that each of the various volunteer and service in Logan County can help one another, learn from each other and benefit each other.
Lt. Denise Stewart of the Salvation Army of Logan said her agency has most of it's holiday preparations done, but noted that one major annual community project will return.
"We have already taken our applications for direct assistance for Thanksgiving and we have done our Christmas Sign Ups for those who wish miles provided," Lt. Stewart said.
The Salvation Army is looking forward to a lot of help and assistance from civic groups, veterans organizations and church groups this winter for the annual Christmas Kettle Drive.
