Scottville Senior Thanksgiving Dinner is Sunday, take-out style.

SCOTTVILLE — The annual Scottville Community Thanksgiving Dinner for Seniors will be held Sunday, November 21, at the former Scottville Optimist Center. After a one-year pandemic suspension, the Thanksgiving tradition will resume as a take-out only event. Meals will be delivered to people who drive up in their cars, from noon to 2 p.m., or until the food runs out. The traditional Thanksgiving dinner will include turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, and vegetables.

The event is sponsored by the Scottville Area Senior Center and co-sponsored by Mason County Central Schools, Scottville Downtown Development Authority and Scottville Optimist Club. Food will again be prepared by the MCC Food Service.

“There is no set charge for the dinner,” said SASC director Bill Kerans. “As always, we will gratefully accept donations to help defray the cost of the 22 turkeys from Shop-N-Save and the other dishes prepared by MCC Food Service. The senior center is also part of MCC, so the event is truly an extension of the school system’s community involvement.”

Take-out only this year

“We’re changing to a take-out only format this year. The hall is undergoing some renovations and is not currently heated. So a sit-down, inside dinner isn’t the best option. Hopefully, we can gather indoors for the meal in 2022.

Kerans said many volunteers are required to put on the dinner.

“We have also invited some of the community leaders who have helped us in the past to join in handing out meals to seniors as they drive up. We greatly apapreciate participation from our volunteers.”
