Thanksgiving Dinner 2015
An annual tradition at the Augusta Boys and Girls Club is to have a Thanksgiving Dinner the Tuesday before the holiday with the youth, their families, volunteers, staff, board members, and other connected supporters to the Club. This year we had a crowd fed by the Kennebec Valley Chamber’s Kennebec Leadership Institute Class of 2015. And just like their name, we had a mouthful of wonderful food. Participants share what they are thankful for in 2015 and there were many themes of family, friends, food, housing, and the Club. This special night is a favorite moment in the year for many involved.
Leaving the party, 11 turkey baskets complete with all the trimmings were donated to families from JS McCarthy and Augusta Elks Emblem Club. With much gratitude, we thank all our supporters who help the Club and the youth that connect to the Augusta Boys and Girls Club.
