The annual Thanksgiving Luncheon at Meridian Technology Center is set for November 13. With less than two weeks until a projected 1,400 guests arrive on campus, students and staff are busy bringing all the details together.

It will take more than 500 pounds of potatoes, 450 pounds of turkey, 300 pounds of ham and 20 gallons of gravy to produce the traditional Thanksgiving fare to feed the anticipated guests.

“The students learn about teamwork, how to bring everything together on a deadline and about trusting each other to follow through,” said Donna Cantrell, Culinary Arts Instructor at Meridian. “From preparation of the food to the decorations on the table, this luncheon provides an opportunity for the students to work with staff in producing this wonderful community event.”

In addition to the Thanksgiving luncheon, there will also be items on display for a silent auction benefiting the Stillwater Area United Way.

The buffet luncheon will be served in The Terrace and The Skywalk at Meridian Technology Center, 1312 South Sangre Road on Thursday, November 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The price is $10 per person.
