Where everyone who was not going ‘home’ to their own family dinners were welcome.
These past few years due to my own health issues I have not been able to commit to the amount of work this requires.
It is worth noting here that for 2017 an employee of Cid's Grocery Store with her family went around Taos with Thanksgiving meals to feed the many homeless and disadvantaged here. They gave up their Thanksgiving dinner so that others could enjoy a special day. If You wish to help out this year ask for Anne at Cid's and speak with her about suggestions of how to become involved.
