by riamn. Average Reading Time: about a minute.

The Mayor’s International Affairs Committee and the Rochester International Association cordially invite all international residents and visitors and their families to a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day.

Thursday, November 22, 11:30 A.M. at the Congregational Church, 965 17th AVE SW (take Highway 52 South, exit on Salem Road, go west, turn right across from T.J. Maxx Plaza into Fox Valley Dr., turn right on Frontage Road to Congregational Church – it is on the left).

This free dinner is prepared and donated by Fred Regal and his family of Regal Catering in honor of Fred’s mother. We thank them for their generosity. Also thank you to the Congregational Church for their hospitality.

IMPORTANT: You have to make reservations! We have limited space. Make a reservation, cancel, or inquire by sending an e-mail to: herta.matteson@ria-minnesota.org. Please put “Thanksgiving reservation” in subject line (otherwise it will be deleted) and indicate country of origin, names of all guests and a phone number and address. You can also call Herta at 280-8319 (not after 9 pm!). If you can’t come, please cancel. We usually have a waiting list and somebody else can come in your place. If you have a musical or performance talent you want to share, let us know! Please be punctual as a courtesy to others, this is a festive sit-down dinner. We want guests to socialize and meet each other in the spirit of Thanksgiving, so plan on staying a while after dinner (even though it’s lunch time, it is a full dinner!). Make your reservations before November 17. To cancel (or to see if room is available only after November 20) call Herta at 280-8319 (please don’t call after 9pm). If you don’t hear from us, your reservation is okay. You need not call to confirm.
