The 1st Annual Turkeys for Troops, held downtown at James Corlew Chevrolet, provided some holiday cheer for many of Clarksville’s military families. James Corlew Chevrolet, with the help of Wal-Mart and F&M Bank gave free turkeys to all active duty military members who came through that day. There were over a hundred volunteers from all over Clarksville including those from Wal-Mart, F&M Bank, and even the Austin Peay State University baseball team there to help make the day run as smoothly as possible and to thank all of the service members that came by.
This is just one of the many ways that local businesses in Clarksville show their appreciation for the sacrifices our local servicemen and women make throughout the year. This inaugural event was such a success that the organizers are already planning next year’s event, so be on the lookout for next year’s date and be sure to thank our local Ft. Campbell soldiers this holiday season.
