The traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the Hall will be hosted by Janet and Dick Leigh this year.
Thanksgiving dinner is a festive event with hundreds of neighbors and family members packed into the Hall. Food is always plentiful as befitting a Thanksgiving feast. Turkey and ham will be provided and everyone else will bring a large dish of their favorite food to share and the beverage of their choice.
The doors open at 3:00 and the feast will begin at 4:00. Everyone is asked to bring their own place settings (plates, utensils, napkins, and glasses) since dish washing is very difficult without running water at the Hall.
Thanksgiving at the Hall last Thursday was a 100% complete success. With over 100 people in attendance, everyone enjoyed each other’s company, the delicious appetizers, the main course (including turkey and ham), and of course the excellent desserts. The co-hosts for this event, Steve/Christina Berg and Jon/Pat Elliott were ably assisted by Steve Weber, Mark/Margaret Heaphy, and Ray Brown among many others.
While folks were talking and setting up their places at the tables, young master Triem serenaded the gathering on his cello with Thanksgiving selections. Before dinner began, Steve Berg made a short speech of thanks, Jon and Pat Elliott recounted what Thanksgiving at the Hall was like 40 years ago on the first occasion, and Randy Kenyon presented outgoing NFLA Treasurer Bonny Ogle with a plaque in appreciation for all of her hard work for that organization over the years. Finally, Mark Heaphy said a heartfelt grace of thanksgiving and the feast began.
