On Tuesday Nov. 24 UF administration, faculty, staff and students are invited the annual traditional Thanksgiving meal put on by the Buford Center for Diversity and Service and the Office of the President. The meal will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union multipurpose room.
This meal is to be shared with students on campus who may not have an opportunity to enjoy this holiday at home with family or friends. All members of the UF campus community are invited and welcome to attend. They hope to bring together 200+ faculty, staff and students to share in this celebration of gratitude.
The annual Thanksgiving Luncheon was started back in 2003 by the University’s Office of International Admissions and Services. This year will be the first time that the Buford Center along with the Office of the President will take on this task to host the 13th annual Thanksgiving meal.
Sodexo will be preparing the majority of the meal which will include: salad, turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, gravy, corn and green beans. The ladies of the Town and Campus alumni groups will be providing the breads for the event.
UF administration, faculty and staff are asked to provide a dessert to be shared among all. An RSVP email has been sent out to all administration, faculty and staff. If you have any questions, contact Eileen Rucki at ext# 5911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
