The Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich hosted its 16th annual Thanksgiving dinner provided by generous community leaders and served by neighborhood volunteers and Club Board members. Nearly 400 boys and girls feasted on Thanksgiving turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes, pies and more.

The annual event gives members a chance to eat a delicious, nutritious meal with their Club friends and Staff as family.

Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich Board of Directors, alumni and Greenwich first responders love participating in this holiday event and serving Club kids.

Some servers include Club alumni Police Chief Jim Heavey and Fire Chief Peter Siecienski, who have made it a tradition to serve the children as they were served when they were members.

Watson’s Catering continued their tradition of preparing scrumptious meals for all in attendance.

“This is one of our favorite events at the Clubhouse. It is great to know that so many members will go home with full stomachs after a great meal served by our community leaders,” said Don Palmer, BGCG program director.
