Georgetown Seniors Make It a Happy Thanksgiving
By June 8, 2015 0 972•
Members of the Georgetown Senior Center and its volunteer staff celebrated all things Thanksgiving at St. John’s Church on O Street Nov. 26. Happy for health, for friends and for a lunch where someone asked for more plates from the kitchen, the seniors first said grace with Rector Rev. Gini Gerbasi, who gave thanks and also asked that those traveling in the rainy, sleety weather be safe and have the appropriate clothing to wear. The traditional lunch — regularly donated by 1789 Restaurant for years — consisted of turkey, string beans, stuffing and mashed potatoes, along with cranberry sauce and turkey gravy. And for dessert? Of course: pumpkin and apple pies. Guests felt doubly blessed to partake of the pate prepared by the former interim rector, Rev. Bruce McPherson.
