Thanksgiving Dinner - October 9th

The noon meal on October 9th will be a complete Thanksgiving Dinner. It will be turkey with all the trimmings - stuffing, potatoes, gravy, salads, cranberry sauce, veggies, biscuits, dessert and tea or coffee, all for only $12.00 per person. Dinner will be ready at 12:00 noon! You do have to let us know you will be attending - phone (204) 857-6951 by 10:30 on the morning of the dinner.

What a great opportunity to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with your family or friends. And, as always for our noon meals, everyone is welcome to participate. You don't have to be a member of Herman Prior Centre, and you don't have to be over 55 years old.

Regular Monday to Friday noon meals are $7.00 and always include dessert and tea/coffee. If you work in the downtown area of Portage, you can arrive at the Centre at 12:00 and be leaving by 12:30 if necessary. For regular meals, call us at 857-6951 by 11:00 to register for the meal and/or to find out what is being served that day.
