Is the Spirit of Thanksgiving Still Alive?
Twin Bridges Rotary Club’s annual “Spirit of Thanksgiving – No One Spends the Holiday Alone” was crippled with the closing of Salty’s Pub in September 2019. The Club was unable to get another restaurant to step in and help continue the 13-year annual tradition that served over 500 meals each year in the Clifton Park area including over 100 home deliveries to shut-ins and first responder locations on Thanksgiving Day.
With a little luck, a new friendship with Just Because, a community minded group from Schaghticoke has been formed and the partnership will now host the event Thanksgiving Day, November 28, in their community. Thanks to Just Because, Twin Bridges will be able to make the meal deliveries to the people who are not able to go out or cook for themselves and frequently rely on Meals on Wheels which does not deliver on the holiday.
Food donations are coming in from many local businesses in the Schaghticoke area and the partnership will provide meal delivery. In addition, for those looking for company, the partnership has arranged for The American Legion Post 731 at 181 Main Street, Schaghticoke to open their doors for two seatings on Thansgiving Day (reservations required) for a traditional turkey day meal with all the fixings and dessert!
Check the Holiday Events page for more information. Call 581-328-8358 to reseve a spot at one of the sittings or to arrange for delivery.
YES, the Spirit of Thanksgiving is Still Alive!
