Avon’s 55e annual turkey dinner set
The annual Turkey Dinner at Avon is back after being canceled last year. The 55e the annual dinner will be served at the community hall on Sunday, October 10 from noon to 4 p.m. with the turkey and all the sides, including the homemade pies. The cost is $ 8 for adults, $ 5 for children 6 to 12, and preschoolers are free. Avon is a small ranching community northeast of Deer Lodge on Route 12.
