The American Legion hosted its annual community Thanksgiving meal for the community and delivered meals on wheels to the homebound as well last Thanksgiving Thursday.

Ninety people ate their Thanksgiving meal at the Legion while 35 meals on wheels were delivered.

Many veteran members, other members of the Legion and non-members volunteered to help with the meal by cooking and serving.

It is a tradition that was started 37 years ago by the American Legion Post 198 veteran members of Archer City.

Too many people in Archer City and the surrounding communities would not have Thanksgiving dinner at all if this community meal were not provide by the Legion.

Post Commander Burk Morris said, “We enjoy doing this every year. It feels good to do something for others.”
