Thanksgiving Feast for School Community

On November 21, the school community gathered for a Thanksgiving meal, prepared and served by parent volunteers and jointly sponsored by the Parents' Association and the School. In the Community Hall of the South Freeport Church, 120 students and parents sat together to enjoy the delicious turkey dinner, complete with all of the fixings, including stuffing, green bean casserole, carrots, turnip, and potatoes - brought directly from Northern Maine by a school parent with family up in "The County". Everyone enjoyed not only the wonderful food, but the opportunity to share in conversation with other members of the school family, including teachers, parents, grandparents and friends. This was a wonderful event, and the School is grateful to the volunteers who made it possible. Some parents cooked, set tables, and served, while others stayed afterwards to stack chairs, fold away tables and clean up. Many thanks to all who pitched in to help, and to those who took the time to join us.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
