A Pre-Thanksgiving Celebration!

Family, friends, and neighbors gathered this past Wednesday to celebrate thanksgiving and get to know one another better. The Neighbor 2 Neighbor representatives helped spread the word and made tasty sides for the dinner. We couldn't have done it without them!

Our turkey. It was my first time cooking one!

Jennifer did a great job carving.
 The South Franklin neighborhood is unique and diverse. For some of our guests, this was their first thanksgiving! We also had many guests who were far from family and friends. It was great to be able to come together as a group and get to know each other better! 

Queuing up up for food!

Everyone brought something that they traditionally have for thanksgiving.
Our great volunteers helped the kids make pilgrim hats and bonnets! 

Trying to get the right fit.

Our thankful tree!

Each leaf had something written on it that we were thankful for.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered and contributed to the potluck! Hopefully there will be many more to come.
