The menu will be chili, crackers, fruit and milk. Reservations are needed for this meal. Also, remember to call for one or more frozen meals over the Thanksgiving weekend when we are closed. and let us know how many you will need and we will deliver them with the regular deliveries on Tuesday, November 24.
