Free Thanksgiving Dinner at Seneca Falls Elks Lodge

When the Seneca Falls Downtown Deli, who hosted a Thanksgiving Community Dinner for 18 years could no longer continue, there was a great deal of concern in the area about the huge void with many of the individuals that had been served, especially seniors and Veterans who were all facing a very quiet and lonely holiday. But, not anymore!Following in the Downtown Deli’s generous footsteps, The Seneca Falls Elks Lodge, along with the Seneca County House of Concern and T.R.A.C.
