A Thanksgiving to remember

Authored by: Sophia Koplin, Skyline High School

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all you have and gather together to realize the amazing things we all have to be thankful for.


This past Saturday, November 19th, 2016, a group of strangers gathered together to share a thanksgiving feast at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. A group of 59 Skyline High School students from Key Club, National Honors Society, Student Body Officers and the Drama Department donated their time and effort to provide an unforgettable Thanksgiving Dinner with the Staff and Participants at Salt Lake County Milestone Transitional Living Program. The room was filled with employees, volunteers, and family members. As people gathered around the table to eat, they shared what they were grateful for.


The gratitude felt in the room was overwhelming as people from all walks of life gathered together to provide a Thanksgiving to Remember. I feel so blessed to have been apart of this amazing event and to have seen the generosity and service oriented individuals. I am grateful for the opportunity each of us has to serve our community. I am grateful to organizations such as Salt Lake County Youth Services, Christmas Box  International and The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church who gave us the opportunity to serve and grow as individuals.
