Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We wish you a warm and wonderful weekend filled with delicious food and quality time with the people you love.
We are thankful to Jesse Cox, Director of Campus Ministry, for spearheading the effort to collect 40+ Thanksgiving baskets from the Marygrove community. These baskets were collected yesterday and delivered to St. Leo’s Parish and the Destiny Worship Center, both in Detroit.
One of these baskets came from library faculty and staff. Together we bought or “borrowed” from our own pantries enough food for a delicious holiday dinner, including mac & cheese, green beans, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, corn, cornbread stuffing, dinner rolls, chicken stock, yellow cake mix and frosting, fresh fruit, fruit juice, and a $20 Kroger gift card for the turkey and fresh produce. (Whew – we’re getting hungry just thinking about it.)
The library will be closed for the weekend beginning Thursday, November 24. We’ll reopen with normal hours on Monday, November 28th. Happy holiday!
