Thanksgiving is a time for most people to be with family and friends, eating, watching football and generally kicking back for the day. But many of us in the hospitality industry have to work. For people without family in town, or those who only have a lunch hour on Thanksgiving, the Hickory House's annual Thanksgiving Dinner is a blessing. With the help of many volunteers, the Hickory House dishes up a classic dinner with all the trimmings from noon to 4 pm. The meal is free but donations are happily accepted and all the proceeds from donations go to the Aspen Buddy Program - a great cause. Happy Thanksgiving!
