Canadian Studies celebrated Thanksgiving with our Bay Area friends on Saturday with our 5th annual community Thanksgiving dinner. Together with our partners at the Digital Moose Lounge, we served a fantastic turkey dinner to one hundred local Canadians and friends of Canada from across the area, including consul general Rana Sarkar. A special raffle sent guests home with prizes ranging from hand-knit Inuit touques to free airline tickets courtesy of Air Canada. But the heart of the event was being able to connect with fellow Canadians and meeting friends new and old. We can't wait for next year!
