Today’s Troop 22 Turkey Roast Moves to 50’s Diner

TROOP 22 News:

The annual Boy Scout Troop 22 Turkey Roast will not be in Rendija Canyon this year due to snow and ice in the area.

American Legion Post 90 has offered the troop the use of the 50’s Diner at 1325 Trinity Dr., for the event, which raises funds for the troop.

The turkey and all of the trimmings will be ready at noon today, Nov. 24. The cost is $8 for adults and $5 for kids. Come and whet your appetite for Turkey and help out a worthy cause at the same time.

Weather Changes Sunday’s Hunger Walk Plans


Winter weather has changed this year’s Hunger Walk plans. The route for the CROP Hunger Walk & Turkey Trot is much too icy and slippery to traverse Sunday, Nov. 24, so everyone is invited instead to come to theLos Alamos Middle School cafeteria for a celebration of anti-hunger efforts.

The gathering begins as early as 1:30 p.m. Sunday to collect all monetary and food donations, hand out gorgeous t-shirts designed by Helene Chavez, enjoy some light refreshments, and, at about 2:30 p.m., hold a random drawing for turkeys and pumpkin pies.

Everyone is welcome! Checks can
