Thanksgiving 2020 is very different this year. Without large gatherings, many older adults cannot be with family and friends, the greatest joy in their life. Lori Contadino, Director of the Greenwich Commission on Aging, and the staff at the Greenwich Senior Center, didn’t want people to go without a turkey meal, so they made it possible for 185 Greenwich Senior Center Members to enjoy a hot, fresh-cooked turkey lunch this week, all for $5.00. As a special treat, members also received an entire apple pie, compliments of the Greenwich Commission on Aging Sponsors.
Chef Teddy Torchon and the Senior Center Chefs cooked the feast and participants lined up in their cars at the Senior Center Circle, at their allotted pick up time, as volunteers and staff placed the meals and pies in their cars. Safe distancing was practiced and masks were mandatory for everyone. The Drive-Thru pick-up was contactless.
Members were delighted to get their turkey meal.
