Ribs return for Lincoln AMVETS

A group of volunteers preps prime rib meals at the Lincoln AMVETS hall on the evening of Oct. 30. This was the fifth such benefit supper the veterans service organization has organized, however 2021 was their first year back after a two-year hiatus. Organizers reported around 250 meals were sold and that turnout this year was strong. Each meal included a slab of prime rib beef prepared by Fredrika Locker as well as homemade cheesy potatoes, coleslaw and bread. Photo by Darvin Graham
Prime rib meals are headed out the door during the Lincoln AMVETS Rib Benefit on Oct. 30. The organization runs the benefit as a fundraiser to help cover overhead costs of their community hall in Lincoln that’s often used for local gatherings. The group is currently at work raising funds for the second phase of a ceiling project. Throughout the year the Lincoln AMVETS assist with color guard and honor guard duties in the area, coordinate outreach to the Veterans Home in Marshalltown and organize the Avenue of Flags at Maple Hill Cemetery each Memorial Day.
