Turkey Take Out Nourished Body and Soul

The Recreation and Parks Team was out in festive force this past Wednesday at they handed out 120 meals and goodie bags to South Burlington Seniors who had registered for the free Turkey Take Out event.  Sponsored by AgeWell, this second event in a series of three, was filled to capacity as residents were able to drive through to a contactless and COVID safe environment to pick up their Thanksgiving Meal along with an extra goodie bag loaded with sweets and treats.

While the snow flew and the wind whipped, staff spirits were high and hearts warmed by the fact that they could help support a nutritious meal and a little holiday cheer.  While we would much prefer to handshake and hug, we know that our thoughts and well wishes were felt and that participants considered themselves hugged.

We look forward to our final event “Honk for the Holidays” on December 2nd.  This event is filled to the 120 capacity, so unfortunately we cannot take additional registrations. We will look for continued opportunities for safe and socially distant connections for our whole community through the winter months.
