On the menu was turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy along with many side dishes, pies, cakes and cookies plus coffee and lemonade.
Country View Estates was host for the day. Janet Oberholtz said grace and everyone then enjoyed a good meal.
Trisha Shreck had a program titled “Be Nice Today,” such as helping someone by buying them a cup of coffee or mowing their lawn for free.
She also told about the first Thanksgiving. People then ate only what they raised, such as turkeys, pumpkins, squash, etc. Many pies were baked on Thanksgiving.
The largest pumpkin pie weighed 2000 pounds. Trisha told what ingredients were used and how much.
