37th Thanksgiving Day Dinner

Nov 23 2:30pm Holiday

The Thanksgiving Day committee members are once again working on the preparations for the traditional St. Magdalen's Thanksgiving Day Dinner. We prepare a turkey dinner with all the trimmings and dessert. Meals can be arranged to be delivered to those who are homebound and a full course dinner is open to all and will be served from 2:30-4:30pm in the Parish Center. In order for us to make this year's event a success, we are asking for the following donations:

Stuffing mix (No Stove Top please), cranberry sauce, canned yams, and bottled soda:

  • If you are able to donate any of these items, please bring items to the Parish Center or put in bin marked Thanksgiving Day Dinner in the Narthex between Oct 29 - Nov 19.


  • Frozen Turkeys – please bring to the Parish Center between Nov 6-17
  • Fresh Turkeys – Please bring to the Parish Center on or after Mon, Nov 20.
  • We are always have a great need for turkeys, as we prepare over 90 of them!

Desserts: Please bring any donation of dessert (pies, brownies, cakes, cookies, etc.) to the Parish Center on Wed, Nov 22.
