Don’t get me wrong I like eating turkey as much as the next guy but if you’re looking for more than just a day of gluttony on the couch, Kent’s got a couple of options for you this Thanksgiving. I can’t think of a better way of getting your day started in a thankful spirit than by participating in the 40th anniversary of the Brunch Bunch fundraiser at the American Legion Post in Kent. For 40 years the Brunch Bunch has raised funds to benefit local hot meals and food relief programs in our area, and given our tough economy the needs are greater than ever. Or if you’re more of an active sort the Kent Parks and Recreation is sponsoring the annual Turkey Trot 5k race at Plum Creek Park. It’s a way to celebrate your health and perhaps feel a little less guilt over the calories you’re likely to consume later in the day. Either way you can’t go wrong. Happy Thanksgiving.
The Brunch Bunch 40th Anniversary – Celebrating 40 years of fundraising to benefit local hot meals and food relief programs, the Brunch Bunch needs your help Thanksgiving morning, November 27th, at the American Legion Post in Kent. This annual charity auction and fundraiser, with lots of great items to bid on, will be going on from 8:00 AM to Noon, and a donation of only $3 at the door gets you endless coffee, cider, doughnuts…and out of the kitchen for awhile on Thanksgiving. Come for all morning, or for as long as you can get away. For event and item donation information, call: 330-678-3120. Don’t be a Turkey…Be at the Brunch Bunch!
