The first of my two Thanksgiving meals was served this past Tuesday at the Uxbridge, MA Senior Center. It was put on this date so that the staff get get 5 days in a row off for a mini holiday vacation. There were around 50 visiting senior there enjoying the meal and festivities.
Present this year were a group of students from St. Mary’s church in Uxbridge that have entertain the seniors at this annual gathering for years. The harmony and voices in the group was beautiful. All in attendance enjoyed the concert.
There were 3-4 prizes awarded thanks to generous donors. A couple of lucky senior took home baskets of goodies and a number of beautiful potted plants. The meal was prepared by two or three of the center’s staff and delivered to the dining seniors by local volunteers that included our politicians.
