Turkey Throwdown and What Rapidians are Thankful About

Underwriting support from:

About 90 people gathered on November 23 for a noon potluck outside the Monroe Center Biggby Coffee Organized by Danny Beckett, Cindy Grace and Lisa Lehmann people from all over downtown gathered to meet, greet and eat. Participants also brought canned and dry goods for the pantry at Mel Trotter Mission.

Mostly organized through social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook, the event's sole purpose was to gather people together and be thankful. In the spirit of the event, we asked some Rapidians what they were especially thankful about this year.
