            Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a Norman Rockwell-type Thanksgiving. Some are shut-ins, some might be new here, and there are others who just can't afford turkey and all the trimmings. For all these people and others in similar situations, there are a handful of organizations providing a hearty meal tomorrow.

 

            Helen Hartman is the club manager at the American Legion, where they've been serving Thanksgiving Day dinner to the public for decades:

 

--          (Thanksgiving 1                     21 sec              "It's something we've ... to their homes.")

 

            Laurie Murdock, the executive assistant at the Kodiak Senior Center, says the practice has been going on for years:

 

--          (Thanksgiving 2                     38 sec              "The Senior Center is closed ... getting you a meal.")

 

            Hartman says the chef at the Legion will be cooking at least a dozen turkeys as well as four or five hams:

 

--          (Thanksgiving 3                     14 sec              "We serve up to 200 ... all the trimmings.")

 

            Dinner is from 3 to 5 p.m. at the American Legion.

            Later in the day, according to Executive Director Monte Hawver, the Brother Francis Shelter will be serving a hot meal to its clients and anyone else interested in attending:

 

--          (Thanksgiving 4                     36 sec              "Again this year ... for providing that.")

 

            Hawver said the Officer Spouses Association provides meals regularly to the Brother Francis Shelter, not just during the holidays.

            A spokesperson at the local food bank, operated by the Kodiak Baptist Mission, said there will not be any specially-prepared Thanksgiving food boxes this year. The food bank usually partners with other community organizations to put together special boxes, but none stepped forward in time.
