“We want to give back to the community because it’s the right thing to do,” said Celeste Burks, public relations manager for Ameristar. “As a group we get to give thanks to each other and celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s a huge honor to be able to come (to Don Bosco).”

Ameristar is now in its seventh year of providing and serving a Thanksgiving meal to Don Bosco seniors. On Nov. 15, Ameristar served up the traditional Thanksgiving fixings of turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, salads, dessert and more.
