Proposed casino’s Calumet City turkey giveaway is latest sign of region’s economic revival

Margaret Graniczny, 63, was first in line Monday when developers of a proposed casino gave away $10,000 worth of turkeys at River Oaks Center in Calumet City.


About 650 turkeys were distributed, organizers said. After waiting in her vehicle for nearly three hours, Graniczny said she appreciated the developer’s interest in building a gaming and entertainment complex as much as the Thanksgiving-themed act of community goodwill.


“We need the revenue,” she said.
