What a wonderful time Penn South Cooperators had, gathered together during the PSPS Thanksgiving Celebration! (And we have picture to prove it!)
On November 15th we celebrated Thanksgiving in Community Room 7A with a delectable meal catered by Mendy’s Kosher Deli as well as classical music, jazz, blues and even show tunes performed live by pianist, Eli Yamin.
Sun poured through the windows of the room, illuminating the decorated tables and hand-made decorations on the walls and tables. Perhaps the most prominent were the autumn flower centerpieces created by the PSPS Indoor Gardening Class. One lucky person from each table won the opportunity to take the arrangement with them to display in their own home!
We also had the pleasure of greeting our newly elected PSPS President, Bonnie E. Williams! She had just been voted in 2 days before the event and it was a great opportunity to meet her in person at such a celebration. A special guest from assemblyman, Richard Gottfried’s office, Hunter Johansson, also joined us at our celebration. He spoke to us before the meal was served, reminding us after Superstorm Sandy that we still have much to be thankful for, despite the difficulties we face.
The PSPS Thanksgiving Celebration was a great success and an inspiration to remind us how good life can be when we celebrate together as friends and neighbors. For those who were unable to join us this year, we hope you join us next year (or at any other event in the coming months, for that matter!).
