On Saturday, November 18th the ladies of our GLCW displayed a lovely bounty of crafts and yummy baked goods for our holiday shopping pleasure. I personally covet their colorful crocheted dishcloths (and fondly remember our beloved Roxi and myself vying over a basket of them one Night of the Stars – in the end we split it☺). So this year our family restocked our kitchen with them in her remembrance.
After the shopping came a bountiful meal. 23 turkeys were cooked, 4-dozen pies baked, and vats of mashed potatoes and gravy were made for our first annual Roxi Mork memorial Thanksgiving Dinner. Every year this was Roxi’s event and she would coordinate every
detail of our Thanksgiving community meal. In her honor, we continue on with the tradition renaming the event after Roxi and her generous spirit. This year, over 225 people feasted on a warm buffet of holiday deliciousness, served by our community, and enjoyed the company of fellowship together as one family in Christ’s love.
We have so much gratitude for those that donated, prepared and served this year’s meal and set up the room for the event. A special thank you to the GLCW group for their talents making so many treasures and goodies.
What a great kick-off to the holiday season!
