SAUK RAPIDS – Sauk Rapids-Rice schools teamed up with the Great River Rotary today for their 25th annual Thanksgiving delight.

Over 300 Senior citizens from Sauk Rapids came from 10 different nursing homes, apartment centers, and assisted living facilities to enjoy a full Thanksgiving meal prepared by volunteers.

The volunteer cooks started preparing at 6 a.m. today by putting turkeys on the grill. Pumpkin pie, potatoes, gravy, and a ton of turkey eventually filled the kitchen as the meal was ready to be served.

This meal also included support from local Boy Scout troops, who helped greet guests and serve meals. Noah Simondet is a member of the Boy Scouts, who’s been volunteering at the event for years:

“Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts is huge in volunteering, so that’s a big thing in helping out the community.”

Daniel Bittman, The Superintendant of Sauk Rapids-Rice schools, says the event is all about giving back to Seniors in the area:

“We are so thankful for the opportunity to give back, we have wonderful Seniors throughout this community.”
