The Southern Meadow Thanksgiving Dinner will be held at our Clubhouse on Saturday, November 23rd at 5:00 pm. There is a cost of $5 per person which will cover the cost of purchasing the turkeys. Turkeys will be cooked and sliced by resident volunteers.

On behalf of the Party Planning Team, and Flo, Pat and Nora, we look forward to a great turnout. Some of us aren’t able to be with family for Thanksgiving, so this event is a wonderful way to share the holiday with your Southern Meadow family and enjoy a great home-cooked feast with friends.

Thanks to all residents who have served in the Military and their families. Also thanks to everyone who has donated their Redner’s receipts to USO Delaware.

For Veteran’s Day, all during November, there will be a box in the Clubhouse to collect items from the USO’s Wish List. If you have large items or cases of water, please call Helen at (302) 751-1059 and I can come get the items or you can drop them off at my house so we are not cluttering up the Clubhouse. The items needed are: cases of water, 12 oz foam coffee cups, Ramen Noodle Packs, Large disposable bowls, cans of Lemonade and Iced Tea. All the following must be single serve packages: Fruit Snacks, Boxes of Slim Jims and Goldfish.

I will also be placing a list with the items needed on the bulletin board in case you would like a copy to take with you when you go shopping.

If you would like to make either a cash or check donation, please call me and I can pick that up rather than putting it in the box.
