Saturday the Lincoln Jaycees
hosted their annual Senior Feast at the Masonic Lodge in Lincoln.
The Jaycees have been offering the Senior Feast for the past six
years, serving about 120 meals each year. The Masons
donate the use of their space to the Jaycees.
The feast of turkey or ham with dressing, beans, mashed potatoes
and a dessert was served Saturday.
The meal is free to seniors but donations are accepted. The Jaycees
ask local businesses to sponsor the feast so that they may offer it
Children of Jaycees members served as the wait staff. The Jaycees
are a national organization dedicated to fostering leadership skills
in their members, all younger members of the community. There are
about 25 members in Lincoln.
The Jaycees partnered with Schwan's at the Senior Feast to raise
funds for the Angel Tree project.
A portion of each sale was
donated by Schwan's to the Jaycees. Schwan's has a history of
helping local charities with fundraisers.
