The Great Neck South High School Community Action Committee hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for a filled room of enthusiastic senior citizens at the Great Neck Social Center on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

The students prepared and served a delicious meal, which included turkey, stuffing, pasta, cranberries, beverages and desserts.

“Ms. Marley Goldman supervised this celebration with the utmost patience and warmth,” said Martha Cohen, one of the moderators of World in Depth at the center. “The students were gracious, efficient and oh-so-welcomed by a group of seniors in our community.”
