This year the Thanksgiving by the Bay event hosted by the Albemarle Foundation will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, from 11 am – 2 pm at the Evelyn Kennedy Center at 618 San Jacinto St. in La Porte. There will be a full Thanksgiving meal provided, complete with turkey, ham, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn, green beans, dinner rolls, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, tea and water. Anyone is welcome to attend. If planning to attend, please register your family online at: www.laporte.tx.gov/wewanttoeat. Or, you may call 281-471-5020. Guests are welcome to come and go at any time during the event and registration is not required to attend.
The meal is graciously provided for our community by the Albemarle Foundation. Volunteers and Staff Support are provided by the Albemarle Foundation and the City of La Porte.
This year the foundation has more than enough volunteers to serve food on Thanksgiving Day so they are asking for families and organizations who want to contribute to consider donating a large gift basket that will be raffled off to those in attendance. Baskets that include things like bath items or household items or food gift cards are all great ideas. All items included in your baskets should be non-perishable. You may drop your basket off to City Hall at 604 W Fairmont Pkwy any time before the event.
