SolTrans providing shuttle service to seniors for Thanksgiving event
Vallejo Together Community, Vallejo Moose Lodge no. 468 and SolTrans are partnering to bring the community together on Thanksgiving Day.
A free Thanksgiving lunch will be offered from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Vallejo Moose Lodge 337, Nebraska St. and SolTrans will provide free service to and from the event.
The annual Thanksgiving
