happy thanksgiving toledoblade

Sobriety group gives thanks, hosts community feast
East Toledo's Idle Time Alano Club is a gathering spot — a refuge open 24 hours a day for wretched, lost souls in need of salvation. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, it holds a community feast — today’s is at noon — for the public at large as a way of giving back to the community and to help break down the invisible barriers that separate society’s haves and have-nots.
