The realities of economics find its way everywhere. So is the case of the WSHS Student Council Thanksgiving Dinner that has been offered to retired residents of the Winona school district for decades. Available funds do not allow for the sustainability of the event past this year.
The final Thanksgiving Dinner event will be held on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at Winona Senior High School. Dinner will be served from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The maximum number of guests is 350 and reservations are a must. There is a charge for the meal of $5 each. There will be no take out dinners, as the intent is for the high school students to be able to interact with guests.
To make your individual or couple reservations, please call 494-1507. This is an answering machine. You will not talk to a person. When prompted, spell your last name and say your first name. Leave your phone number. Reservations should be made for individuals or couples only, and you will not get a call back to confirm. The reservation line opens on Monday, October 28 and will close on November 8 or before depending on when the maximum number of guest reservations is reached.
An entire generation of Winona Senior High School Student Council members have enjoyed the opportunity to serve our districtís retired residents in this way. They look forward to it one last time.
