About 100 seniors gathered for an early Thanksgiving lunch at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center on Nov. 16.
Staffers from the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and volunteers from the Mercer Island Women’s Club served turkey, potatoes, cranberry sauce, punch and pie to event attendees.
The city sponsors many themed lunches for seniors throughout the year, including an upcoming St. Patrick’s Day event and a previous “Oktoberfest and Root Beer Garden.” See www.mercergov.org for more information on senior programs.
City offices, including the Community and Event Center, will be closed Nov. 23-24 to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. The library will be also closed the day of Thanksgiving.
