Thanksgiving is an American holiday celebrating the community and perseverance of the first pilgrims to arrive on the North American continent and the Native American Indians living there. The holiday is traditionally celebrated by spending the 4th Thursday with your family and friends, cooking all day, eating an early dinner, watching American football and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and being thankful for the people and things you cherish in life.
We will be celebrating with our international community in the HIWC by eating turkey, sharing dishes from our home cultures that symbolize thankfulness, friendship or community, and spending an early evening together. Bring the whole family for this typical American feast and celebrate all that you are thankful for.
What to Bring
Please let us know what type of dish you’d like to bring! The turkeys will be cooked by some of our families and shared during the dinner. We ask each you to bring a dish to share and upon registration, one of our members will follow up with you to coordinate dishes. Closer to the date we will be able to give you an estimation of the number of people we expect to attend.
You do not need to bring cutlery, plates or cups, but since we are renting the venue it would be great if you could give us a hand in cleaning up afterwards.
The club will provide water, tea, coffee and juice. You’re welcome to bring alcohol if you’d like.
On the registration form, please add your spouse, partner or adult children as “Guests“. This will help us with the attendee count and how much food to make. Thank you!
Registration closes one week before the event on November 19.
