In it's fourth year, the Jaycees will enjoy a great Thanksgiving potluck meal together, but also build a sense of community and “giving back” by adopting a local needy family by providing them with food and recipes to make a hearty thanksgiving meal. This is always a popular event, so RSVP soon with your dish.

The Gobble: Members will be asked to bring a pot luck dish, another set of unused raw ingredients for their dish and the recipe on an index card. The turkey will be provided by the chapter. The recipe and the ingredients will then be delivered to a needy family in Alexandria that does not have funds to provide a Thanksgiving dinner for his/her family. The Jaycees will collect the food on the day of the pot luck dinner and then it will be delivered to family on Monday or Tuesday of the following week.

The Wobble: The Jaycees will have a Thanksgiving type meal at Blair's Condo where we can all gather together before we part ways for the holiday. This will be a potluck style dinner / BYOB where the host (Chapter) will provide the turkey and members are asked to bring their favorite complimentary dish from their own family thanksgivings. Members will RSVP through Meetup and indicate what side dish they are bringing to help guard against multiple dishes of the same food. Please respond in your RSVP what dish you are bringing so that everyone can see what everyone is bringing. Please bring your dish cooked and ready to eat. (We can reheat as necessary) Cocktail hour will begin at 6:00 and dinner will be served at 7:00 pm.

A final reminder email will be sent to all participants before the event, outlining the menu, on site logistics and any last minute details
