The annual Thanksgiving/Veteran's Day dinner is Mountain Youth School's most anticipated event. We host approximately 150 guests each year, mostly by invitation only. Our honored guests are our veterans in our area, or relatives of our students and staff. Veterans are recognized for their services, and students perform songs from each military branch. We also entertain our school administrators and students' families, usually with a different musical guest each year.
The Thanksgiving meal, served buffet-style, is a crowd favorite. Prepared under the direction of school secretary Diane Parker, the meal always includes delicious turkey, mashed potatoes, bread, vegetables, and dessert. Guests intermingle with students and a good time of fellowship is had by all.
