For most of the MAC Academy students, it was their first exposure to this Holiday. Students were provided a history of Thanksgiving and the true meaning of the day prior to the dinner. The fact that the MAC family is a family of many cultures, generations and beliefs brought deeper meaning to the Holiday.
We gratefully thanked our hosts, Lt Hillary and Lt Matt for their generous offering of food and good will. Thank you Salvation Army of Rochester!!!
