A traditional meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls and pie will be served at the annual Thanksgiving dinner at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the University of Wyoming.
The event, scheduled in the Wyoming Union Ballroom, is for UW students but also is open to the public. Students are required to show their student ID, and non-students must bring three canned goods for the Laramie Soup Kitchen. All attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods to donate; a list of items needed can be found here.
UW Catering and Events will provide the traditional Thanksgiving Day feast.
The classic holiday movie “The Grinch” will be screened during the dinner. Based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved book, the film follows the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit.
The 7220 Entertainment Club Events Committee, which hosts the Thanksgiving dinner, meets Mondays at 5 p.m. in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.
Individuals needing assistance to attend events should call the Campus Activities Center at (307) 766-6340.
