It’s a staple of many Thanksgiving meals across the country, and over the past several years it’s also become a tradition at Minot’s Parker Senior Center. Stuffing is the featured item in an annual taste-tested competition at the center. The KX stuffing team was the reigning champion, and once again included photojournalist, Gaylen Ness, and reporter, Dan Erdmann. Gaylen’s original “Seafood Stuffing” had some stiff competition from KMOT – TV, Clearchannel Radio, and the Minot Daily News. Ruby Rau is the Office and Social Services Manager for Minot’s Salvation Army, which sponsors the event. She says the stuffing will serve a good cause- to feed over 400 people at tomorrow’s Salvation Army Thanksgiving Meal. (Ruby Rau, Salvation Army) “There are families out there that aren’t able to provide a meal for themselves and this is a place where they can get together and have a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Also, there’s a lot of elderly people that are alone and their relatives and family members are not around, so they also come down here to be with a group to have dinner with others.” The Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving Meal will begin tomorrow at 11:30 am and run until 1 pm at the Parker Senior Center in Minot. It’s open to the public and deliveries are available as well. And in case you were wondering, Gaylen and Dan’s stuffing once again took first place.
