For the first time in the 31 years that Stanfield Elementary School lead cook Tammi Thomas has worked for the district, the annual district Thanksgiving feast, originally scheduled for last Thursday, had to be postponed because of the weather.
Thanks to the very prepared staff at the schools, however, the meal took place on Monday. Students and community members were served large helpings of freshly sliced turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pudding, stuffing and much more.
