ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - An event in the area brought neighbors together for Thanksgiving.
The sixth annual Onalaska Community Thanksgiving dinner at the Onalaska Armory welcomed everyone in, including community members who may not usually celebrate Thanksgiving or have loved ones elsewhere. The menu featured Thanksgiving classics like turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pies.
Organizers say the event has grown over the years and they expected to feed about 1,200 people Thursday.
It is a little humbling to be able to feed so many people, and to bring together so many people just to celebrate thanksgiving and to celebrate the Onalaska community," said Onalaska Enhancement Foundation President Tom Brewer.
Volunteers also delivered about one hundred meals to people who couldn't make it to the event.
