Presidents Day was the perfect time for Mayer Area Meals on Wheels to dig out the red, white and blue for their Yankee Doodle Luncheon.
And it was a Yankee Doodle Dandy lunch with barbecued chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob and baked beans. Guests had a choice of the orange or lime jello salad, and dessert of a brownie topped with ice cream, melted fudge topping with the inevitable whipped cream and cherry on top.
The crowd came in bunches as the churches let out, which made it nicer without long lines. The volunteers lined up for their picture before serving began.
Karon Trovillion sold the 50/50 tickets and stuffed the stubs in the can during the meal. This was won by Ellie Atwood, who proudly displayed her winning raffle ticket.
