Thankful to serve and receive
For nearly four decades, hundreds have been turning out to enjoy free food and entertainment for Juneau seniors and their caregivers, served by Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers, some of whom are retired and fly in for the event. The first annual Senior Citizens Holiday Dinner was organized by Master Chief Petty Officer Carl Constantine in 1974, but the event took a hiatus last year. Organizers are pleased to announce the dinner is back this year, its 40th, at the Peratrovich Hall. The date is Dec. 7 and doors open at 5 p.m., with food served at 6. Seniors are welcome to bring one guest each. Call 463-2252 for information.
