YOU ARE INVITED TO ARNOLD'S 3RD ANNUAL MISFIT THANKSGIVING DINNER

Thursday November 28th at 5pm

It's odd to think this is our 3rd annual free (yes free) thanksgiving dinner at Arnold's.  It started because frankly my family had (note the word had) gotten really small.  When I was growing up we had huge Thanksgiving dinners but it wasn't just family.  It was friends and neighbors.  The evening ended with card games and fun. 

The first year at Arnold's was awesome with many customers and friends that either had no place to go or chose to come to Arnold's instead.  It was amazing the different dishes people brought and how they didn't overlap.  Gail Ginther and I shared in a game of Scrabble. 

Last year, which was our second Arnold's Misfit Thanksgiving, was very heartfelt.  I found myself single and knew Thanksgiving was going to be trying.  Also, my son had married into a very large family.  Imagine how honored I was when I found out they would be coming to Thanksgiving dinner at Arnold's.  I will always be grateful to the ones that came to this dinner and made it so special for me.

Now on to this year!!!! We will once again open our doors to all!  Customers, family, friends, Staff, anyone.  And yes, it is free.  I make the turkey, the ham, the gravy, the stuffing and my favorite family traditional dish.  You bring a covered dish.  I will have non-alcoholic beverages provided.  You are welcome to BYOB if you would like.  It isn't a day for making money.  It is a day of celebration.  And yes, it is free.  If you have a musical instrument you would like to bring that would be great.
