Just 2 weeks before the event, we had to change our venue for our traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. However, we did not let that dampen our spirits! With a grand effort of our members & friends we transformed the Association into our 'home' for the evening. Another great night of sharing Franco-American friendship to add to our memory book!
And because Thanksgiving is a time to say "thank you"
the "busy workerbees" who set up and decorated the tables,
Gill, who carefully checked everyone in,
the members who prepared elaborate appetizers,
the members who cooked real Thanksgiving dishes: sweet potatoes casseroles, seasoned beans salad, gravy & cranberry sauce,
the members who made plenty of delicious pumpkin pies,
Linda who kindly accepted to roast BDX-USA's huge turkey,
Alan who cut the turkey off as a real Rockwellian patriarch,
Kevin, organizer of the raffle game,
members who couldn't be with us but who wished us a happy Thanksgiving via emails,
gendarmes, police officers, firebrigades, paramedics, nurses & doctors, soldiers working hard & long hours to look after all of us (BDX-USA was too happy to share a few cakes with Laurent and his unit),
and all the members & friends who celebrated Thanksgiving together.
