The annual thanksgiving luncheon at Wilma’s Place might have looked a little different this season, but staff and students still had a reason to be thankful.
In the past, the school community would sit together for a turkey dinner, complete with all the fixings, but due to COVID-19 restrictions it wasn’t possible this year. However, that didn’t stop Foods Instructor Sandra Zarcone from preparing a feast.
“Being creative during this time is more important than ever,” said School Social Worker Kelly Duffy-Kariam.
Turkey sandwiches on fresh Kaiser buns, apple pie and healthy smoothies were served up concession stand style while respecting physical distancing guidelines.
A Thanksgiving prayer said before the meal reminded staff and students to be generous with each other and thankful for the many gifts they are blessed with.
“It was important to us to offer the students a turkey themed luncheon and a prayer of thanksgiving because we are a family and we are grateful for one another,” said Duffy-Kariam.
"This year, there is much to be grateful for.”
