Talking — And Donating — Turkey

Sunday’s fire destroyed more than a significant portion of Saugatuck Congregational Church.

Also lost:  over 30 donated turkeys, part of the annual Thanksgiving Feast (now set for 1 p.m. Thursday at Christ & Holy Trinity Church).

It took less than 24 hours for the turkeys to be replaced.  Scott Thommen of Britt-Air, along with Stew Leonard’s, quickly made sure the church had one less thing to worry about.

For Stew’s, it was the 2nd turkey donation to Saugatuck Congregation.  “The world’s largest dairy story” had already donated a bunch o’ birds — the ones caught in the fire.

Oscar's Andy Porier; Scott Thommen, owner of Westport's Britt-Air; Randy Christophersen, chair of the Saugatuck Feast Committee, with newly donated turkeys.

  1. needless to say, that’s very kind of those men to double-donate reminding everyone (without trying to) how best to celebrate Thanksgiving.

  2. Always great to see members of our community make a difference for those who need the support. Thanks to Stew, Andy, Scott et al for stepping up.
