Your Thanksgiving Memory”. For many of us, the meaning of
Thanksgiving usually includes feasting, four-day weekends, football
games, floats, family reunions, or a forerunner to Christmas
festivities. Over the centuries, families added their customs to the
Thanksgiving celebration, preserving that which they held most
precious. This year, the Ypsilanti Senior Center would like to
provide an opportunity for individuals to share stories of their
favorite thanksgiving memory with others. You never know who may need
to hear a kind and/or comforting words during the holiday. Please
bring a dish for distribution, a warm smile (and/or hugs), and memories
to share. As a gentle reminder, sign up on sheet will be provided in
the large room. The center will provide the main dish of honey baked
ham. Additionally, MeridianCare will be presenting.
