"Alone on Thanksgiving? Nowhere to go? Come join us at the RIDA/CBN Senior Center annual Thanksgiving dinner," says Roosevelt Islander Wendy Hersh. She's arranged the feast with an assist from the Carter Burden Network and a team of volunteers.

As with other Thanksgivings, the Roosevelt Island Senior Center opens its doors on Thursday, welcoming one and all to a warm, lovingly prepared, traditional meal.

No one will be turned away as volunteers from CBN and the Roosevelt Island Disabled Association swing into action, welcoming all comers from 1:00 to 3:00 on Thanksgiving.
