CHAUVIN, La. (AP) — A free Thanksgiving feast that grew from a devastating hurricane more than 25 years ago will be held again in Chauvin.

Thursday's event will occur from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ward 7 Citizens Club, 5006 La. 56.

The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/10vRpEG ) anyone can attend the dinner.

Volunteers have prepared 26 turkeys, 14 hams and 75 pounds of rice dressing to serve to anyone seeking a home-cooked meal. There will also be cornbread, yams, cranberry sauce, peas, French bread, pies, cakes and soft drinks.

Food and other items were anonymously donated.

Parish Council Vice Chairman Pete Lambert, who has been the main sponsor of the event for about 14 years, said the feast has been a long-standing tradition that began in 1985 following Hurricane Juan.
