Community Enjoys Thanksgiving Feast – To Go
Thank you to all who volunteered and drove through the 11th Annual Burgess People Care Thanksgiving Dinner. Over 175 community members received a delicious Thanksgiving Feast, take-out style this year.
Volunteers started preparing for this event months ago, knowing that additional considerations were needed for take-out options. This type of event requires many dedicated helpers, and this year Boy Scout Troop 332 volunteered their time. Burgess employees donated many of the needed grocery items, and volunteers made pies. Cooks were peeling potatoes and making turkeys in their own homes on Wednesday night. It was a team effort, and the result was a remarkable Thanksgiving for all involved.
Burgess People Care, an employee organization at Burgess Health Center, sponsors this event each year and relies on the generosity of employees, friends, family, and other community members to make it happen. The committee wants to thank the many volunteers and donors who work to keep Nancy Broer’s dream of a community dinner on Thanksgiving alive.
