On Monday night, the Potato Club hosted a Thanksgiving Feast for the students of Sterling College in Heritage Hall. The event began at 7 P.M. and ran for over an hour.

The club served a traditional meal of mashed potatoes and gravy, turkey, stuffing and macaroni, alongside pie and sparkling cider. The event also included time to fill out numerous “thank you” cards for Sterling faculty members.

Students gathered in the hall at seven, and quickly filled the room. Ashley Dodge, an SC senior and the club publicist was surprised by the large turnout.

“It went better than we expected,” Dodge said, “We were really excited when a lot of people came, and it was good to see their excitement within their fellowship together.”

The students sat with their food and enjoyed each other’s company as the event came to an end. The event concluded with a large selection of “thank you” cards for students to show their appreciation of the entire Sterling College staff.

Brett Couture, a Resident Director at Sterling enjoyed his time at the event, and he was glad to see the student’s appreciation and spirit.

“I enjoyed seeing everyone and signing the cards for all of the awesome people who work on this campus,” Couture said.

Shelby Stowe, Potato Club Treasurer and Sterling College Senior expressed that having “thank you” cards was a great choice for the atmosphere of the college.

“The cards are an element we chose to encourage students to think about others during this time of thanksgiving,” Stowe said.

Sterling Senior and Potato Club President Chloe Heard shared her appreciation for those who made the event possible.

“Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful. I would like to thank Caitlin and Anthony Glaze for letting us use their space to make all of this food,” Heard said.

Heard also discussed the preliminary plans for their upcoming Spring semester event.

“Bring out your fancy dresses,” Heard said, “Our next event in the works is the ‘Potato Prom’ in the Spring.”
