On Thanksgiving Day men of Salem Moose Family Center 2573 and women of Salem Chapter 2232 served dinner to 90 veterans at the Salem Veterans Administration Medical Center. These veterans included patients who were wheelchair bound, or suffering from PTSD and other physciatric problems associated with their service to our country. There were many of our members who could not attend but helped by preparing or donating food. All of the food served was donated by the Salem members or Salem Lodge 2573. Those members who brought, cooked, or donated dishes were William and Cathy Bell, Louise and Harry Rhodes, Wendy and Jay Frye, Gunther and Lisa Gass, Bette Mullikin, Brandi Dooley, Christina Wilhelm, Susan Wilhelm, Daryl Thompson, Karen Keesee, Sherri Harlow, Braden and Brenda, and others.
