Thanksgiving Feast at Greenwich Boys & Girls Club

Greenwich police officer Andrew Mitchell hands out pieces of pie to kids during the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich’s special Thanksgiving dinner for over 300 club members in Greenwich, Conn., on Tuesday, November 23, 2021. The kids taking part in the dinner were served buffet style with everyone lining up and getting served by members of the staff and prominent people like First Selectman Fred Camillo and Fire Chief Joe McHugh among others.

A Thanksgiving tradition returned in full force Tuesday as an in-person holiday dinner with all the trimmings was dished up at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. More than 200 club kids met at the Horseneck Lane headquarters to feast on a buffet that included turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, vegetables, and a choice of pumpkin or apple pie.

Last year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the club handed out to-go meals to members drive-thru style. But with the return to the popular format Tuesday night, everyone was in the mood to celebrate.

Don Palmer, the club’s vice president of programs and youth development, said last year the club’s Thanksgiving take-home dinner event attracted 90 kids; with the return to indoors, nearly 230 were in place. “The club is back and it is rolling,” Palmer said in a pre-dinner address to the volunteers and board members taking part in the event. “The parents are happy and the kids are safe.”

The club had several notable servers, including Chief of Police James Heavey, Fire Chief Joseph McHugh, Greenwich High School principal Ralph Mayo, Greenwich Country Day Head of the Upper School Chris Winters, Greenwich United Way CEO David Rabin and town Director of Parks and Recreation Joe Siciliano. Former club CEO Bobby Walker Jr., who left last year to take a position at Greenwich Academy, returned to help.
