Thanksgiving School Community Luncheon 2015

An immense thank you to all of our volunteers for a fantastic Thanksgiving School Community Luncheon last Monday with 148 plates served !
It was probably the best therapy possible for many of us to overcome the senseless atrocities of Paris, two days prior.  The turkey with stuffing and all the fixings were once again prepared by our talented parents/chefs Stephanie Brewer and Jason Jellick who spent most of their weekends preparing for the festivities and started the oven at 4am on Monday !
Many hands helped prepare the food, set up the room, bake pumpkin cupcakes, set tables, and serve, 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. Also a special thank you to Dasha and her art students for the beautiful centerpieces in the form of pumpkins. This was the first Thanksgiving meal for our newly arrived staff and they were very impressed, like some new families, by the friendly and cooperative spirit of the celebrations.
