SOLDIERS GROVE, Wis (WXOW) – More community efforts are in the works to help provide relief to people in need after the recent flooding in the region.

They’re holding a chicken dinner on September 22 from 11 am to 3 pm at the post at 103 Legion Drive in Soldiers Grove. It includes chicken, au gratin potatoes, baked beans, salads, dessert, roll, butter, and beverages.
The cost of the dinner is $10, although they will accept more if people wish to donate additionally.
OrganizerJulie Ruef said that each person who buys a dinner will receive a ticket for the chance to win door prizes which will be drawn every half hour.
