We were honored to have Joe Pucciarelli, pictured here at left with Giving Chair Betsy Moquin, join us at our meeting on January 3.  Joe has run the Westborough Community Thanksgiving Dinner for the past eight years.  Having just completed its 47th year,  this annual event which takes place at the Knights of Columbus Hall, serves a traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, cranberry sauce, apple cider, pumpkin pie and assorted desserts.  This year set new record in participation for both guests and volunteers, with 115 meals served, an additional 47 meals delivered, and 85 people helping to make it all happen. Many of the volunteers enjoy the fellowship and festivity of giving when they may not have a local family to share it with otherwise.  A long list of sponsors helps to make the dinner possible.  To see Joe's entire presentation, which includes information about the changing demographics of the attendees, and how his team has learned to cook turkeys to maximize food safety, please visit our Facebook page.
