Looking ahead to next month, Morgan Mill School is already planning the community-wide Thanksgiving dinner at the school on Friday, November 16. Superintendent Dean Edwards wants to exceed last year’s attendance of 600. From 11 to 1 pm the kids will be hosting the largest Thanksgiving dinner in Morgan Mill. This tradition started over ten years ago with the students inviting their parents, grandparents and a few friends to lunch. The kids will be cleaning the school, sending out invitations, and greeting their guests. It is an event that you will need to be sure is on your calendar.
