The free gourmet Thanksgiving Day Feast and Party at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center is now taking reservations.  All Santa Clarita Seniors are welcome.
Taking place Thursday, November 22, Thanksgiving Day at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center, 22900 Market Street in Newhall, doors open at 10 a.m. Appetizers served at 10:30 a.m.  First course served at 11 a.m.  Call the Senior Center at 661-259-9444, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.  Say, “I want to make a Thanksgiving reservation”.
Hosted by the Castaic Lions Club, the William S. Hart Union High School District and the Senior Center.  This is “far more than a fabulous feast. We serve a multi-course meal that is comparable to any fine Thanksgiving Buffet” said event creator and manager Flo Lawrence.
“Great kids from all Hart District High Schools work the event in a dozen jobs.” Lawrence added. “It’s inspiring to see teenagers making genuine friends with Seniors, and vice versa.”
“No senior need be alone or hungry on Thanksgiving. Great food and company is ‘on the house.’
We encourage ‘take home boxes’ for leftovers. Second boxed meals for Friday are provided, since the Senior Center is closed the next day, on Friday,” Lawrence said.
Santa Clarita Valley’s finest restaurants donate freshly made food. More is prepared by renowned Chef Ryan Jewell.
Starting: A gourmet appetizer prepared by Chef Jewel, hot sourdough rolls from Chi Chi’s Pizza and mixed greens salad from The Vines Restaurant & Bar at the Hyatt Regency.
Traditional roasted turkey and ham is prepared by Chef Jewell, Gourmet stuffing from Larsen’s Steak House, candied yams from Marston’s Restaurant, gourmet mashed potatoes from The Salt Creek Grill, zesty mixed vegetables from Tournament Players Club and real cranberry sauce by Le Chene Fine French Restaurant are next.  Great desserts and ice cream follow.
“The reservations go quickly, so please call to reserve seats right away,” Lawrence said.
All SCV seniors are welcome, and reservations can be made by calling the Senior Center at 661-259-9444, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Say“I’m calling to reserve a seat (or seats) for Thanksgiving”.
