LEICESTER, Mass. — For the fourth year, State Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury) and State Rep. John Binienda (D-Leicester) will host their annual Thanksgiving Dinner celebration for Leicester senior citizens.
The event, which is paid for by Moore and Binienda, is free for all seniors. It will take place at 11:45 a.m. on Nov. 19, at the Leicester Senior Center, 40 Winslow Ave.
In previous years, more than a hundred local seniors have attended the meal.
“Some of the most important aspects of being a legislator are giving back to the community and connecting with constituents,” Moore said. “I truly enjoy the opportunity to share a meal with local seniors, hear what they have to say, and share the holiday with them.”
“I always appreciate an opportunity to thank Leicester seniors for all that they have done for the community over the years,” added Binienda. “These folks have seen and lived through a lot, and many of them are veterans of wars past, so being among them is truly an honor.”
Among other things, the meal will include turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and a dessert. Residents must call the Senior Center at 508-892-7016 to reserve a space.
