Thanksgiving

PRE-TURKEY TROT COLLECTION EVENT

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25

This year we are providing an additional opportunity to drop off food donations for those that are unable to attend the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot & Food Drive. Come by the Hamlet Swim and Tennis Club to drop off your donations (see below for current food needs).

FOOD TRUCK

The From Scratch food truck will also be at the Hamlet Swim and Tennis Club's large parking lot from 5-7PM where you can purchase dinner. View the event menu here.

THANKSGIVING TURKEY TROT & FOOD DRIVE

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26 | 10AM

Please join your family, friends & neighbors for the Annual Hamlet Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, November 26, 2020 at 10am.

This year due to COVID and the need to avoid large gatherings of people, we will not be meeting in a central area for the Turkey Trot. Instead we ask that you start and end the walk from your own home at the point closest to the designated route (see map). Trotters, walkers, children on bikes and dogs on leashes – are all welcome! Be sure to send a socially distanced wave to your neighbors on your walk throughout the neighborhood.

Please bring donated food items to the Hamlet Swim & Tennis Club at 8209 Dunsinane Court. The items will be collected and transported to Share of McLean by the Hamlet's O’Grady Family.
