Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the Circles Thanksgiving last Thursday at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church.
More than 100 people ate a delicious traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, rolls, pies and more. We give our thanks to the following organizations and people who made the event possible:
Clear Creek Christian Church donated 15 turkeys – one for each of the 15 Circle leaders to take home and cook for Thanksgiving.
Voices of Hope, a choral group at Indiana University, performed three songs after dinner. They also held a food drive on campus and provided bags of side items that are traditionally eaten as part of a Thanksgiving meal to each of the 15 Circle Leaders
Jo Gilbertson, a member of the Circles Guiding Coalition decorated the room and set the tables. She and four St. Paul’s Catholic Church members cooked much of the meal. They and Wykita Walker, Erica Thompson, Marcy Wenzler, Katie Toler, Angie Thorpe, Shane Springer all peeled a lot of potatoes, served the meal, and helped clean up.
In addition, Patrick Aleer and Will Murphy each bought and cooked a turkey, and delivered it to the Circles meeting. Wal-Mart and Smokin’ Jack’s Rib Shack made contributions for the meal.
