“For me this time of year is about family and giving back when and where I can to the community that helped me become who I am today. I’ve been coming this park since I was a kid so to be able to come back here and serve meals to other families and community members who may not otherwise be able to have a Thanksgiving dinner is important to me. I’m happy I got the chance to be in town this year to personally help serve meals and spend time with people in the community” said Westbrook.
