Thanksgiving Meal To Go

Family and Morale, Welfare & Recreation reinvented this year’s traditional Thanksgiving Buffet at Club Hood and made it a safe contactless Thanksgiving Meal To Go! Patrons can place their orders by phone or in person until close of business Nov. 18.  A curbside pick-up service will be provided on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26, between 11 a.m.-2 p.m. DFMWR wants to ensure they stay relevant while continuously and safely providing traditional services during the pandemic. The goal is to implement and successfully execute this whole new experience of contactless curbside pick-up for patrons to enjoy Club Hood’s Thanksgiving meal in the comfort of their houses. The cost is $80 for four people and $140 to feed eight. To order, call 254-532-5073.
