College Village Staff Prepare Thanksgiving Dinner for Residents

Residents in College Village have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday. Beginning at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, November 25, the Resident Assistants and College Village staff at Genesee Community College will prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for students in the Village Hall of College Village. The meal is free to residents and will include turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and of course, pumpkin pie.

On average, 100 to 150 students attend the annual dinner. For many, this will be their only Thanksgiving celebration. And for international students, this may be the first time they’ve experienced the holiday or tasted the traditional fare.

“The RA’s and staff get to cook all day for this event and we definitely have fun along the way,” said Ellen Brokaw, Assistant Director of Residence Life at College Village. “For some, this is their first try at cooking a full Thanksgiving meal. We hope to have a good turnout of students participating and are looking forward to a fun evening.”

This is the fourth year that College Village has provided a free Thanksgiving dinner to students.
