Arlington residents are approaching Thanksgiving dinner with a different attitude this year. Many are focussing on the things that make them grateful, like health, and family, even if they are on a zoom call instead of across the table.
According to the Arlington Connection, “Lila Harmon of Arlington said she is thankful for friends and family; she will do what she pretty much always does on Thanksgiving: sit down with her Mom, immediate family, boyfriend and eat turkey. Jim Moore of Moore’s barbershop isn’t doing anything this year: he might eat a turkey bacon sandwich for breakfast, he joked. Grateful will be the emphasis this year, not food.”
As per Arlington Connection, “Some Arlingtonians are trying hard to raise funds for people who have been affected by the pandemic, and some of them will run the Turkey Trot virtual 5K to do that. And for those who feel a little lonely this year, Bob and Edith’s Diner is now open for business on Lee Highway, and they will be offering their standard open-faced turkey sandwich with two sides, from 7 am to 3 pm on Thanksgiving Day.”
