Sparta American Legion hosts annual community Christmas dinner

A local community is coming together to celebrate Christmas.

The Sparta American Legion is hosting its 26th annual Community Christmas Dinner.

On Christmas Day people are invited to stop by for a free, traditional holiday meal.

It goes from 11 AM to 2 PM, but delivery services are available for those who can’t attend. You can call the American Legion at 608-269-4411 to request a delivery.

The Sparta Cab is offering free rides to and from the event for people who need transportation. To contact them, call 608-269-6725.

The American Legion is asking for donations, which will go to local charities and nonprofit organizations.

They are also looking for volunteers to help with the event. If you would like to sign up, call 608-269-4411.

Last year, over 1,000 meals were served to people in the Sparta community.
