Seniors brave winter weather for special Thanksgiving event

Vincent Festa Published:

The 30th. Annual event, of the Mantua Knights of Columbus "Senior Thanksgiving Dinner" goes off with out a hitch. Most of the 201 seniors who had reservations made it to the event despite the snowy winter weather. All of the Seniors were treated to a full Thanksgiving Dinner complete with a western theme, music, and gifts. This is a yearly gift giving event to local "Portage County Seniors Citizens" from The Mantua K of C #3766 and with help from the Mantua Women’s Auxiliary #3766, local businesses and community volunteers the seniors had a wonderful time. All leftover turkey and trimmings were donated to "The Center of Hope" in Ravenna. Portage county seniors would not let the cold and snow keep them from enjoying this special event. The Mantua K Of C is celebrating their 60 year anniversary in the month of December, congratulations Knights.
