Sponsored by the school’s Student Council, the annual Thanksgiving Boxes project provided all items for a traditional holiday feast: a turkey, milk, stuffing, gravy, rolls, butter, cranberry sauce, vegetables, potatoes, a frozen pie, whipped cream, a baking tin/bags and cooking directions.

Student Council advisors Lisa Brooks and Kim Julian said MMS staff members provided monetary donations for the food.

Participants of the MMS after-school program created the Turkey-themed boxes, while the occupational education class made Thanksgiving cards and the technology class made peg game boards so families could have a little fun together.

The Student Council provided 10 boxes full of goodies and the Saddle Pals 4-H Club donated two bags full of Thanksgiving meal goodies.
