The Payson Elks Lodge plans to once again host a Community Thanksgiving Dinner. The meal, which features turkey, side dishes and pies, is free and will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 25 at the Payson Elks Lodge, 1206 N. Beeline Highway.

COVID-19 forced the annual dinner to be served in a drive-in and pickup fashion last year.

This year the Elks will be serving both dine-in and takeout options. The lodge is also working with the area Realtors to deliver the dinner to the homebound. Homebound residents who would like to take advantage of the Elks Thanksgiving Dinner can reserve a meal by calling 928-474-2572 between now and Nov. 20 to be put on the delivery list. If they have someone who can pick up dinner, those individuals can just walk in and get it to go.

It is unnecessary to be homebound to use the takeout option — just walk in and say you want your dinner to go. The meal is served buffet style; you will get takeout boxes for the choices you select.

To volunteer for the event — helping set up, serve and clean up — call 928-474-2572.
