Brandin’ Iron General Manager Josh Speakman, left, accepts a check from Cullman County Republican Women (CCRW) President Jacqueline B. Schendel. The organization is helping sponsor the annual Thanks-GIVING dinner, a project of nonprofit Saving Forgotten Warriors, which has teamed up with Speakman for the last five years to provide a Thanksgiving meal for veterans and their families. This year’s dinner will take place in two locations from noon-6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23- one at the Brandin’ Iron restaurant in West Point and one at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2214 in Cullman. The event fed more than 1,000 people last year and organizers are expecting a good crowd again this year. If you are interested in helping with a donation of $10 or more or want to volunteer, contact Speakman at 256-739-1112.
