The St. Margaret Mary Council is hosting the Adopt-a-Salor Project this year on Thanksgiving Day. Details are:
The council will be proividing transportation and will pick-up 30-40 Sailors/Recruits from Great Lake Navy base, they’re officially not sailors yet because they’re still going through basic training. Typically they arrive with a Fire Department escort around 10 AM.
We typically provide them with some sort of appetizers, then with a full Thanksagiving Day dinner around 1 PM.
We provide them with our own personal Phones, computers and I-pads so they can reach out to home. This is the first and only opportunity they have to call home, since they joined.

Please feel free to join us at any point during the day, for any amount of time. It is an experience that will warm your heart and prepare your soul for the Advent and Christmas season.
