Operation Thanksgiving is under way. This is the 19th year that members of Bethlehem Star Lodge #249 of Saluda have sponsored the charity food drive in the county.
Last year, lodge members collected enough food from the public to feed 190 needy Middlesex County families at Thanksgiving. Program chairman William T. Bagby said this year they hope to collect enough food to feed 195 families. Food boxes are being distributed throughout the county. Those wishing to make a monetary donation, make checks payable to Operation Thanksgiving, c/o William T. Bagby Sr., 2729 Ware’s Bridge Rd., Church View, VA 23032.
