Avon’s 55th annual turkey dinner set
The annual turkey dinner in Avon is back after being canceled last year. The 55th annual dinner will be served at the community hall on Sunday, Oct. 10 from noon to 4 p.m. with turkey and all the fixings, including homemade pies. Cost is $8 for adults, $5 for children 6-12 and preschoolers are free. Avon is a small ranching community northeast of Deer Lodge on Highway 12.
Since 1965 the dinner has been a fundraiser to heat and maintain the community hall. It also is a fun afternoon as friends and neighbors have opportunity to chat and to make new friends with visitors from many of the area communities.
