On Monday, November 21, the BPKFL celebrated Thanksgiving with 142 of our closest friends and family. As usual, all the traditional dishes were on display in a long, bountiful buffet staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy were just the start. As our guests moved through the line they were also treated to Joan’s signature corn casserole, homemade bread and cranberry sauce. As if this weren’t enough, this cornucopia of delights was capped off with a choice of pumpkin or cherry pie with whipped cream… DELIGHTFUL.
Of course, the entire dinner would not have been possible without the efforts of our tireless volunteers, from resupplying the food to serving, there is no limit to what these generous souls will do to bring this wonderful tradition to life.
