The City of Salem is preparing to feed an estimated 250 people at the annual community Thanksgiving Dinner to be held November 23, 2010, at the American Legion Bingo Hall.  The dinner is open to all city residents and will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Mayor David Bower said area churches are invited to join in this time of fellowship and to encourage those in their congregation, who need a good holiday meal, to attend.

For entertainment, the Salem Middle School choir will perform and Shayne Dowling will show a video titled “Big News in a Small Town” by Walter Cronkite. There will also be a tribute to Bill Spradley, who started the annual community Thanksgiving Dinner over 30 years ago.
Last year, approximately 150 people attended the dinner and the city is hopeful this event will continue to grow each year. The Rotary Club will be serving this year’s meal.
Anyone needing transportation is encouraged to call city hall by noon on November 22 and transportation will be provided. Additional details on transportation arrangements will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Roland Lemus, with Southern Indiana Transit, will provide transportation for senior citizens at the following locations: Maple Leaf Apartments, Grandview Manor, Sycamore Hills and Meadow Dell.
The bus will leave at 11 a.m. and stop at each apartment complex.

Another meeting concerning the event will be held Nov. 18 at noon.
For more information or to request transportation, call city hall at 883-4265.
