Pay It Forward Dinner

On September 28th 2013 at 6:00 pm the American Legion Auxiliary will host  its annual “Pay It Forward” dinner. The dinner was started as a means of collecting food items for the ABC Food Bank located in Athol and in remembrance of Ellie, who believed the way to return a favor is to “Pay It Forward.” All of the supplies to cook the meal are donated from local merchants. The price of admission to the dinner is a suggested donation of $7.00 or food donations to the ABC Food Bank.

This dinner was started in remembrance of a dear friend. Ellie taught me to return a favor by paying the favor forward. The last year that Ellie was in Germany she left her fully decorated Christmas Tree, households goods, and bedding with Norma Jean and her family. Her only request was to pass the gift on to someone else in need.

We have chosen this dinner to also remember three ladies who gave so much to our communities Laverne, Shirley, and Fran.

Thank you everyone for your continued support,

Norma Jean Knowles
