Truckload of turkeys

Cranbrook Seniors Dinner raises enough for 96 birds for Salvation Army

The Salvation Army took receipt of 96 turkeys on Thursday

The Salvation Army took receipt of 96 turkeys on Thursday, to help make sure everyone has a festive Christmas this year. The turkeys are courtesy of the Cristoforo Colombo Lodge and the Cranbrook Rotary Club, with help from Superstore. Ticket sales to last week’s Seniors Dinner at the Colombo Lodge raised $2,160, $1,000 of which was donated to the Cranbrook Senior Citizens’ Club, and the rest used to purchase the turkeys. Superstore gave the clubs a good deal on the turkeys, and threw in a few extra for good measure. Superstore also gave the clubs a discount on supplies for last week’s dinner.
