Sailors’ Thanksgiving dinner kept afloat
McHENRY – When 10-year-old Presley Diakow heard that the McHenry Veterans of Foreign Wars was short turkeys for its annual Thanksgiving dinner for sailors, he knew something had to be done.
The McHenry resident decided to collect the holiday staple, and the project snowballed into something bigger than the handful of donations he envisioned.
Through an outpouring of support from family, friends and classmates, Presley has pulled in 70 turkeys and 12 hams, as well as corn, green beans, salad dressings and pies for more than 200 sailors from Naval Station Great Lakes who will call the local VFW hall in McHenry home Thanksgiving Day.
