Every year, my hometown celebrates Thanksgiving as a real family. A group of volunteers led by one of my best friends, one of the attorneys in town, puts on a gala, day-long event, and everyone in town -- and all the surrounding towns -- is invited. The work stretches for weeks prior to the big day, and the cleaning up and packing up can sometimes extend into the new year, but it's so much fun, and the fellowship among people from every walk of life is well worth the effort. The day includes breakfast beginning at 8:00 a.m., a complete Thanksgiving dinner beginning at 11:00, televised football, movies, board and table games, live music and dancing, bocce games when the weather permits, and supper at 5:00 p.m. I thought perhaps you'd like to take a little look at some of the fun involved.
