A Joyful Thanksgiving

Because of their particular family situations, many residents spend their Thanksgiving Day holiday at St. Louis Center. A traditional meal is prepared and the entire community gathers to share it together. This year Dave Thompson, Kitchen Manager at SLC, planned a little bit of fun to go along with the food. The residents played a game of Pin the Tail on the Turkey, went on a scavenger hunt and after lunch they even enjoyed breaking pinatas in the gym. Extra help in the kitchen this year was provided by Gary Smith and his family who recently moved to Michigan for his new job as a professor at the University of Michigan Medical School. Gary has a developmentally disabled brother and has committed to serving that population each year as a way to give thanks for those who care for his brother in Florida.
