Giving thanks at Reach Out Lodi

Reach Out Lodi hosted its Thanksgiving Day meal on Thursday, Nov. 25, serving around 145 people who either dined in, carried out, or had meals delivered. ROL pre-ordered 40 turkeys from Main Street Piggly Wiggly, and all were paid for by members of the community — including 38 by one anonymous family. The meal featured the traditional fixings of rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes/yams, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and more. Placemats at all tables were decorated by Lodi Primary School students.
