2022 Holiday Dinner Details
The Vacaville Veterans have hosted the FREE Holiday Dinners at the Veterans Memorial Building for over 30 years. Each year we serve about 800 meals either at the hall or through deliveries and take-outs on both Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve days. Over 150 people volunteer to prepare and serve meals, greet guests, serve desserts, package take outs and deliver meals, wash dishes and mop floors for each dinner. Each year the community helps us out by donating turkeys, hams, desserts, rolls and cash to supplement what the veterans provide for the dinners.
The Vacaville Veterans are always grateful for the support received from their neighbors and enjoy being able to continue giving to the community. We look forward to this program each year. Once again American Legion Post 165 will take the lead as the sponsoring organization for the dinners.
Because of continuing Covid concerns, this year’s dinners will again be different. We will begin contacting regular volunteers around October 15th and will start taking donations early in November. No meals will be served at the Veterans Memorial Building again this year. Instead, all meals will be delivered and we will have to limit the number of people who volunteer. Please see the attached flyers for details about both Holiday Dinners. For questions please email us.
Thank you for your continuing support.
