Grateful for All Our Neighbors
Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you got plenty of pie, turkey and all the rest! More than 400 of our neighbors, family, and friends gathered together for the 4th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Chef Peter Esposito and his crew cooked up a delicious meal featuring 65 roast turkeys, plus 150 lbs of potatoes, 100 lbs squash, 120 lbs stuffing, 100 lbs cranberry sauce, and volunteers baked dozens of pies, too. We are grateful to all the volunteers, sponsors, and especially to all who shared the holiday with us. You can see more pictures here: http://www.thanksgivingscarborough.org/pictures.html
We also gave away dozens of Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets, and want to thank everyone who contributed, including our local Girl Scouts, Scarborough HS Football Team, VIPs, St Max, and all the neighbors who made up a festive holiday meal.
COmmunity Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving Day, Thursday Nov. 28
All Are Welcome! Please Come!
Thank you, Neighbors! >>LIST
The Community Dinner is hosted by Project GRACE, Community Services, and Scarborough Nutrition. But we couldn't do it without the many helping hands along the way. We are thankful for all our volunteers, hosts, and sponsors. It takes many hands to make light work, and it's how this dinner comes together every year.
What's In a Thanksgiving Basket?
Delicious goodness, that's what's in a holiday meal basket! There are the fixings for a traditional holiday meal plus a modest grocery gift card to get a turkey, or other fresh items. There may also be extra touches like a pack of festive napkins or paper plates, a fresh pie or treat for the kids, rolls or bread, roasting pan or aluminum foil. Some baskets also have the fixings for another meal or two over the holiday weekend: pancake mix and syrup, pasta and sauce, soups and peanut butter. We also hope for fresh items like oranges, apples, bananas or potatoes, carrots, celery, squash, onions, and green beans.
Baskets are needed by Monday, November 25th.
