People who want a free bus ride to Mr. Thanksgiving's annual turkey dinner should sign up by tomorrow at noon.

MetroLINK is taking reservations by phone for round-trip rides to South Park Mall in Moline. It's for people who live in the Illinois Quad Cities. 

The number to call is 309-788-3360. Riders with reservations should call back on Wednesday to get their pickup times. 

Dinner for about 2,000 people will be served Thanksgiving Day from 4 until 6 pm. Volunteers who want to help serve turkey and all the trimmings should arrive at 3 pm. 

This is the 49th year Bob Vogelbaugh will host the dinner. It's for everyone, but especially those who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving.

He's accepting donations by mail, at 3704 26th Street, Moline, Illinois 61265.
