119 years of turkey
SHABBONA – The first meal, which consisted of chicken, cost a quarter.
Of course, that was in 1893. Grover Cleveland was in the White House, there were 44 states in the Union and Charles and Frank Duryea had just built the first gas-propelled automobile in the United States.
Last Thursday, the Shabbona United Church of Christ served its 119th Turkey Dinner, which cost $10 for adults and $5 for children. Other than the change from chicken to turkey, not a lot has changed in the annual fundraiser for the church, which has become a huge community event.
