A full Thanksgiving dinner will be served to anyone who would like to enjoy the meal by members of the Jennings Township Volunteer Fire Department on Thursday, November 24.

Greg Hammons, vice president of the fire department, said the dinner will include ham and turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, pumpkin pie and drinks. Serving time will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and there will be no charge for the meal.

The dinner will be served at the fire department, located at North Second Street and State Road 256 West (West Main Street).

Over 200 people enjoyed the meal last year.

The event has become an annual project for the department, and its cost is offset by monetary donations and contributions of food for the meal. Volunteers are also welcome to come and help during the meal, Hammons said. “We welcome all contributions and willing hands to help us set up, serve and clean up,” he said.

Those willing to donate or needing more information are welcome to talk with Hammons by calling 812-820-9430 or 812-752-4372 or by calling Erika Smith at 812-820-3538.

Everyone is invited to attend the annual Austin Christmas parade and open house on Saturday, December 3.

The Austin parade will begin at 1 p.m., stepping off from the corner of Broadway Street and U.S. Highway 31 North. Entries led by the Austin High School Band will march south on U.S. 31 to the first entry to the grounds of Austin Upper Elementary, the elementary school and Rigel Gym. Dispersal will take place by the gym.

Santa Claus will come to Austin once again in this parade.

There's a reason for following the parade to what was Austin's original high school. At the gym in that building, a city-wide open house will be hosted by the Austin Beautification Committee immediately after the parade.

Christmas music will be performed during the open house, and children will enjoy visiting with Santa Claus while munching on treats that will be served.

Members of the City of Austin Beautification Committee are sponsoring this year’s parade and the open house. Residents are encouraged to line the route along U.S. 31 and enjoy this holiday tradition.

For more information or to learn how to participate in this year's parade, call the Austin Mayor's Office at 812-794-6646.
