Lake Trail starts holidays with a Christmas luncheon

Sixth annual Christmas luncheon

Lake Trail Middle School hosted their sixth annual Christmas luncheon complete with all the fixings on Friday, Dec. 19.

Approximately 300 people were served turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade gravy, veggies and stuffing along with a multitude of delicious desserts prepared by students in our foods class under the direction of Ms. Slater.

Mr. Taylor’s Leadership group transformed the gymnasium into a winter wonderland! They created artistic snowflakes, candy canes, nutcrackers and more!  Staff donned their Santa hats and festive costumes, and served the lunch along with distinguished guests.  A very special thank you to Thrifty Foods stores on England Avenue and Crown Isle for providing all of the food needed for this event.  Managers Andy Carter and Jeff Ackinclose went above and beyond to provide all of the turkeys, potatoes, vegetables, stuffing and cranberry sauce for the event. Thanks to Andy and Jeff, our students went home on the last day of school with a full tummy and smiles all around. Special thanks also goes out to Tanya at Starbucks Coffee on Cliffe who provided delicious hot coffee for our staff and guests. What a wonderful way to start the holidays.
