Last Wednesday morning, the Sons of the American Legion Post 67 in Versailles delivered Thanksgiving dinners to six less fortunate families. Each fully prepared meal included turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, stuffing and rolls.

“... one way that we can give back and to help families at the holiday,” said Josh Rodgers, president of the Sons of the American Legion (S.A.L.) Post 67.

“It’s good to give something back. We’re all fortunate enough to have places to go, places to eat. So we want to make sure other people have that too,” he added.

He and other S.A.L. members say they’d like to do more so they’re asking anyone in the community who knows a family in need to let them know. With its donations and fundraisers for the year, this nonprofit service organization wants to give back to the veterans and their community.

“Let us know (about a need),” said Rodgers, “and we’ll do the best that we can.” American Legion Post 67 can be reached at 873-7064, ask for the post commander or an officer with the S.A.L.
