We here at the Vinton County Visitors’ Center do not engage in partisan politics. We believe that all Americans should exercise their right to vote -your vote is your voice and it is a right not given lightly but fought for and defended by countless men and women before us.
With that said …… Something else we support on Election Day?
The FOOD!!! And it is everywhere.
Election Day dinners have long been a traditional fundraising opportunity for local organizations. This year is no different. Here’s what’s on tap this year.
Hamden Volunteer Fire Department
Breakfast (7 a.m. to 10 a.m.) – Enjoy all the pancakes you can eat plus sausage, coffee and orange drink for just $5.
Lunch and Dinner (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) – They will serve beans, cornbread, ice tea, coffee and dessert for $5. Hotdogs are available for an additional charge. All proceeds benefit the department.
Zaleski Volunteer Fire Department
I am sad to report that the Zaleski Fire Department has cancelled their 2012 dinner because of the untimely death of one of their members.
McArthur Business and Professional Women (BPW)

American Legion Ladies Auxiliary
(Breakfast and lunch) at the old firehouse in Wilkesville. Biscuits and gravey, bean and chili soup, hot dogs and sloppy joes. And I think some desserts. Everyone welcome.
