The Newburyport Lions Club Thanksgiving Dinner is once again offering local families a free all-the-trimmings meal in a traditional holiday atmosphere. All are welcome to this one-seating dinner, which will be served on Thanksgiving Day at 12:30 PM at the Newburyport Senior Center (331 High Street, in front of the Bresnahan Elementary School). The menu will consist of Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Peas with Pearled Onions, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Rolls with Butter, and Assorted Desserts.
For those who need a ride there will be a bus providing transportation starting at 11 AM, with stops at Newbury Village, James Steam Mill, Sullivan Building, Heritage House and Horton Terrace. Those who are interested in a ride are welcome to wait outside or in the main lobby for the bus to arrive.
The Newburyport Lions Club Thanksgiving Dinner is made possible by the collaboration of many business, groups, and volunteers throughout the community. The Newburyport Lions Club Thanksgiving Dinner is currently in need of desserts such as pies, cookies, and brownies. If you would like to donate desserts, please feel free to drop them off the day before or the day of the event at the Newburyport Senior Center but please, due to state law they are unable to accept home baked goods. Store bought donations with clearly marked ingredients are greatly appreciated.
The Newburyport Lions Club is also seeking volunteers to help in the kitchen, serve the food, make home deliveries, and more. If you would like to volunteer and be a part of this great meal, please contact event chair Don Carey at 978–384–8535.
