The Ladies Auxiliary to R.W. Fritzinger VFW Post 7217 collected enough food to furnish a complete Thanksgiving dinner for 10 families in need. Several baskets of food contain not only a turkey, but some received a chicken and a ham, along with several canned goods and more. They received donations of money and food items at Redner's in Northampton, Country Harvest in Palmerton and Pathmark in Walnutport. Pies were donated through Faith Ohl from a fundraiser by Dance with Kim for costumes.

Fritzinger VFW Post 714 president and District 20 president.
