Thanksgiving eve sees EDH feast

-A +A
Lots of food, Thanksgiving Day style, is available free to the public today, in El Dorado Hills at the Ramona Gilmore Senior Center on Lassen Way. A pet program of social activist Moni Gilmore’s, the Nov. 26 feed is provided by El Dorado County’s senior-care program on the eve of the Thanksgiving Day holiday. “We will serve a big dinner at noon that Wednesday,” said Janet Kenneweg, center director. It will be traditional. “Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce,” Kenneweg said. Many people skip meals in front of a Thanksgiving Day feed. “People need to get there by 11:30 a.m.,” Kenneweg said. “Last year, 40 or 50 people came.” The county does this kind of dinner at all senior sites in the county, she said. Although the Thanksgiving feed is an integral part of El Dorado County’s senior-care program, neither senior status nor El Dorado Hills residency is required to spend Thanksgiving dinnertime at the Gilmore center, Kenneweg said. The Ramona Gilmore Senior Center is located at the intersection of Lassen Way and El Dorado Hills Boulevard. – Information compiled by The Telegraph’s Roger Phelps.
