Thanksgiving Dinner

140th Celebration

Thanksgiving Dinner

On Wednesday, November 15 at 5:30pm at Salem’s Thanksgiving dinner turkey, dressing, sides, and dessert will all be provided. A free-will offering will be taken to purchase grocery gift cards for Dr. C.T. Vivian Primary School families. Checks should be made payable to Salem Lutheran with “CT Vivian” in the memo line. During the Thanksgiving meal, there will also be a highlight of Salem’s 140th anniversary.


Dr. C.T. Vivian Primary School is a public school that serves 369 students in K – 4.
The mission of Dr. C.T. Vivian Primary School, a community that honors and embraces diversity, is to ensure an excellent academic foundation through a nurturing, supportive, and safe environment for each child to achieve their highest character development and partnership with their families and community.

Salem has partnered with Dr. C.T. Vivian through the Adopt-a-School program for over 20 years. Beyond this offering for grocery gift cards for families in need, Salem members volunteer in the classroom, provide items for Teacher Appreciation treats, and provide outreach benevolence.

The stability of homes is different nowadays. The broken home is now generational. Kary Boerger, principal at C.T. Vivian Primary school has shared that the school’s biggest challenge is trying to do more with less. Thank you for helping continue to foster a relationship with Dr. C.T. Vivian Primary School by providing the food gift cards that enable people to purchase their own food in a time of need.
