At least 200 people enjoyed a preview of their family’s Thanksgiving dinner, written large and small, the evening of November 26 at the Sturgeon R-V, K-8 cafeteria.
That is when volunteers cooked 11 turkeys, many deep-fried by Sturgeon’s Stan Robinson, and 12 hams and served them with traditional Thanksgiving Day
fixings to at least 200 family members and friends of the Sturgeon R-V pre-school program.
As the warm glow of good fellowship and camaraderie filled the room volunteers circulated to make sure everybody had enough to eat and the younger guests were able to color on the coloring pages left at each table for entertainment.
Children and parents alike seemed to appreciate the meal and the pre-school.
“It’s a good thing,” Kyle Schultz, there with his wife Taylor and their pre-school son Tyler along with his brothers Samuel and Brenden. “He’s learned to be a lot more outgoing since he started the pre-school, wanting to do more with other kids and making friends.”
Kyle said Samuel and Brenden also attended the pre-school and their experience encouraged he and Taylor to enroll Tyler. “The early teaching does a really good job of preparing them for kindergarten.”
