Continuing the annual tradition, the students, faculty and staff at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts Center came together Wednesday to produce close to 150 traditional Thanksgiving dinners for the Dominican Sisters. Our kitchen was in full production, with turkey being sliced, potatoes being mashed, vegetables being sorted and pie being cut. The meals were carefully packaged in colorful boxes decorated by students from Aquebogue Elementary and Hampton Bays Elementary schools. Several students from Westhampton High School joined in with the packaging of the meals. This comprehensive community effort resulted in the opportunity for those less fortunate to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The true spirit of Thanksgiving is alive and well here at Suffolk County Community College.
Thank you to everyone who participated.
