Community members come together for Thanksgiving celebration
October 12, 2017

Thanksgiving was a Ramily affair this year as President Mohamed Lachemi hosted a lunch for students at the Student Learning Centre (SLC).

As well, for the second year in a row, Ted Rogers School of Management students, faculty and staff partnered with the Church of the Holy Trinity to serve a free Thanksgiving meal to local community members.

Nearly 25 staff, faculty, friends and family members served a crowd of nearly 200 people on Thanksgiving Monday. TRSM executive chef Paul Huang and 12 students from the school’s hospitality and tourism management program prepared more than 120 pounds of roast turkey, 50 pounds of mashed potatoes and vegetables, 50 litres of butternut squash soup, and more than 60 pumpkin and apple tarts.

Socks, gloves, mittens and other winter gear donated by the volunteers were also given out at the lunch to community members.
