Thanksgiving Feast

Read a report of the 2021 Thanksgiving Feast

In 2021, the CCA board that took office at the end of August 2021 decided to organize a Thanksgiving Feast for the community on November 14, at 2 pm, in the Carson Fire Station. CCA President Art Wilbur felt that, given the number of older residents who live on their own, many of whom would not be able to celebrate the holiday with family, organizing such a feast would be a good way to build a sense of community. Art and his wife Sharon did much of the legwork for the event, and the rest of the board and volunteers helped with setup and clearup, and contributed food as well. The turnout of more than 60 people far exceeded the board’s expectations, and several people expressed deep appreciation to the board.

In 2022, the turnout was even higher than the previous year’s. Given the popularity of the event, we will likely repeat it if circumstances permit. We will keep you posted.
