We had a wonderful Objectivist Thanksgiving meetup last time. Special thanks to my parents, Franco & Julie, for providing us with a hot and hearty Turkey dinner. We also had several side dishes and deserts contributed by others, but I regret I cannot remember who contributed what, so I apologize for not being able to give proper credit where credit is due.
While many of us continued to get to know each other better, we also had the opportunity to welcome and meet at least five new participants in our meetups. We met long-time Objectivist Tom Miovas, who Julia and I knew from our college days but had not seen for at least 15 years! We also had the opportunity to meet another long-time Objectivist family, Earl and Della L., and their daughter Anna Rand L. And we had the opportunity to welcome Aaron and Renee to our meetings.
In total, we had 36 participants this time, including 6 children. We enjoyed the opportunity to have some friendly discussions and socializations.
