People in need are welcome to attend “Thanksgiving in the Spring,” a community meal planned and hosted by students at The College of St. Scholastica.
The meal runs 4-7 p.m. Wednesday in the Greenview Dining Room on the St. Scholastica campus. Dinner includes baked chicken with sage dressing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, rolls and dessert.
A play area for children features games and other activities. Approximately 400 diners are expected and 400 meals will be delivered to Duluth homebound residents.
Free buses to St. Scholastica run from Churches United in Ministry (CHUM), the Damiano Center, Union Gospel Mission and the Salvation Army in Duluth and Superior. Bus schedules are available at each site.
“Thanksgiving in the Spring” is part of Community Day at St. Scholastica, and complements the Thanksgiving Buffet in November sponsored by St. Scholastica and the Twin Ports community. It is planned, prepared and staffed by St. Scholastica freshmen who are part of the Dignitas first-year program at the college. They also raised money by soliciting area businesses to pay for the event.
Other Community Day events feature 100 students leaving campus at 7 a.m. from the Mitchell Auditorium parking lot to participate in a lobbying effort and about 90 students doing volunteer work at sites throughout Duluth.
