Bill Meizenthal (left) and Jim Groseclose ham it up a bit for me - That's a raw onion in Jim's hand.
Tim Bessette cleans up a few pots and pans
Tim Wills (left) and Pete Fitzgerald quickly informed me they were just waiting for more turkeys to come in.
Bob Bessette is shown boiling the carcuses to make broth for the gravy & dressing.
It takes a few onions to make the dressing.
And this young man keeps busy running the dishwasher
These young men are peeling just a few potatoes............
and right behind them, Potatoes, Potatoes and more Potatoes
Everybody needs a break now and then.
Everybody knew their tasks, while others went from one job to the other, where ever they could help out.
Here the chairpersons of the Annual Turkey Dinner check to insure everything is in order so far.
Jeanne Groseclose chops up just a few onions for the dressing.
Any more carcuses for the broth????
Yup!!!, here you go.............
Turkeys are furnished by parishioners who cook them and bring them in. Here Fern Rainville drops hers off and is searching for a pan so she can bring her roaster back home.
This ought to do it, says Fern. In the background, Jeanne is still chopping onions.
OK, another turkey here
And another turkey is brought in, but it won't be long and there will be another carcus in the pot.
