  • Dover International Speedway will organize and host a holiday dinner for the troops at noon Dec. 21 at the Dover Air Force Base, 1st St., Dover.
    Each year, the Speedway's hospitality and concessions department and volunteers cook prepare around 30 turkeys; 15 to 20 hams; 100 pounds each of green beans, corn and yams; 50 pounds of cranberry sauce; 10 gallons of gravy; assorted desserts.
    Many Air Force reservists are still on active duty from the war in Afghanistan and make up a large portion of personnel on the base while the full-time active duty troops are overseas. The dinner will serve approximately 300 troops at the base this year.
