CHITTENANGO — Clear Path for Veterans will host a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner for Veterans and any families of active duty military members who will be deployed during the holiday at its main office at 1223 Salt Springs Road on Thursday, Nov. 25.

The home-cooked meal prepared by Clear Path’s Executive Chef Michael Sheets will include all the traditional fixings and dessert, including turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and pies.

Clear Path transitioned to delivering Thanksgiving meals to Veterans in 2020, but officials said they are thrilled to return to its traditional Thanksgiving dinner at Clear Path and encouraging people to gather with us in the Great Room at our Chittenango headquarters.
