Holiday Spirit


EAST LIVERPOOL — Mike Vertucci was among employees of Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort who carried boxes filled with frozen turkeys into the East Liverpool Community Resource Center, where they will be given out, along with other food items, to families for Thanksgiving.

Mountaineer donated 70 turkeys to the center, and general manager Gregg Carano said, “Mountaineer has been giving back to our community for years. When I moved here four months ago, (employees) said, ‘Are we still giving away turkeys at the holidays?’ and I said of course we are.”

Resort personnel handed out 775 turkeys throughout the day to several agencies, including those in Chester, New Cumberland and Steubenville.
