The Greenwich Boys & Girls Club served up its traditional Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday.
Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich hosted its 19th annual Thanksgiving dinner provided by generous community leaders and served by neighborhood volunteers and Club Board members.
Nearly 300 boys and girls feasted on traditional Thanksgiving fare such as turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes, pies and more.
This annual event enables Club members a chance to eat a delicious and nutritious meal with their Clubhouse friends and Club staff as “family” — keeping in line with the Club’s commitment to offer kids a safe and nurturing environment and a sense of belonging.
Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich Board of Directors, Alumni, and Greenwich First Responders love participating in this holiday to serve Club members. Some servers, such as Club alumni Police Chief Jim Heavey and First Selectman Fred Camillo, have made it a tradition to serve the children as they were served as members.
Courtnay Arpano of Courtnay’s Kitchen prepared all of the 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, Vice President of Programs and Youth Development.
