Mike & Leona Adams Thanksgiving Dinner

Event Date: November, 25 2013

Event Times: 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Veridian Credit Union is preparing for the annual Mike and Leona Adams Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday, November 25, from 4:30-7:00 p.m. at the United Auto Workers 838 Union Hall in Waterloo.

Union retirees and credit union volunteers expect to feed approximately 1,000 people seeking a free hot meal and companionship.  The Northeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging will deliver 350 of those dinners to its current Meals On Wheels recipients.

Former Veridian board member Mike Adams and his wife Leona established this free annual meal in 1982 when tough economic times impacted many Iowans.  More than 30 years later, though both Mike and Leona have passed, the tradition that still bares their name has grown.  Now those who attend can also receive a free haircut from Clip Art Corner and blood pressure check from Cedar Valley Hospice.

Free transportation to this event, provided by Metropolitan Transit Authority, is available for people living within Black Hawk County.  Those in need of transportation should call (319) 236-5600 by November 15.
The UAW 838 Union Hall is at 2615 Washington Street in Waterloo.
