Knights of Columbus hosts 36th annual Thanksgiving Dinner

RAPID CITY, S.D. – There’s nothing quite like a hot meal and a slice of pie on Thanksgiving. Knights of Columbus held its 36th annual Thanksgiving dinner at St. Thomas More High School.

Thanksgiving is a time where we gather, give thanks and feast. For those who are in difficult financial situations, it isn’t always easy. Knights of Columbus wanted to provide a welcoming place with hot food for those in need. Students and Boy Scouts were also among the group of volunteers.

Volunteers from all over Rapid City worked together to put on a Thanksgiving meal for community members. People of all ages were hands-on and involved in serving at least 100 guests. In fact, the oldest volunteer was 88 years old.

The feast consisted of the classic mashed potatoes, turkey and bread rolls. They also had a wide variety of pies.

For Jeff Meyer, the Grand Knight with the organization, it is about serving and experiencing humility.

“They’re the most gracious guests in Rapid City. Yes, every single one of them,” said Meyer.

The event has been a tradition for over 30 years but has been hosted at St. Thomas More for seven years.
