“The Board of Directors is honoured and fortunate to be in a position to be able to give back and say ‘thank you’ to our community during this season of sharing and gratitude” BIA chair Larry Horwitz said in a news release.

The event is open to the public, and no identification or paperwork is required to collect a free bird. Those who are interested should arrive earlier as turkeys will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
