Tom knows turkey

I know its early, but Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  And, I sure do wish that everyone in our area will have a holiday filled with good friends, family and food.  It does seem basic, but too many have none of the above.  This Saturday, November 16th, from 8am to 4pm, we will be hosting a Turkey/Food drive in conjuction with the Food Bank of Nevada County.  We are hoping to get a truck filled up with all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving feast, including 300 turkeys.  Financial contributions will also be accepted by the Food Bank.  They can make money go a long way in feeding the needy thanks to partnerships with local farmers and grocers.  I would love to see all our KNCO listeners step and help…and I will be out there.  With the name, Tom, I will be easy to spot.

And thanks in advance.
