Celebrating Thanksgiving Tradition

Celebrating Thanksgiving Tradition

Our traditions act as a compass for all of our human relationships and personal interactions…As we honor traditions, so we learn to honor ourselves, and in the final analysis, each other.”

— Donna Rockwell, PSY.D.

The holidays remind us that tradition plays an important role in our lives. Through our own personal experiences, tradition becomes a shared experience that connects us to each other and to our community. Because much of tradition is associated with warm family memories, celebrating tradition is intricately tied to our wellbeing.

That is why we embrace tradition at Meth-Wick. Each year, staff and residents look forward to our Thanksgiving feast. This year 300 guests, residents and their families, will enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet. The menu includes:

  • Turkey
  • Ham
  • Glazed Salmon
  • Assorted salads and sides
  • Lots of pies and desserts

“Residents love the very traditional holiday spread,” says Dianna Young, Meth-Wick’s General Manager of Dining Services. “They also enjoy watching the chefs carve the ham and turkey as they go through the buffet line. The glazed salmon, freshly made cranberry relish, and mint chocolate and pumpkin pie are resident favorites.”

Our residents have the option of feasting in the main dining room at The Manor or hosting their family in one of the private dining rooms (reserved ahead of time).

Meth-Wick is home to our residents. We’re honored to help them continue important traditions like the Thanksgiving meal, which is so vital to their wellbeing.
