PRESIDENT JAN asked us to keep the following in our thoughts and prayers: BOB BROCK and BILL HATFIELD who had heart surgery in Indianapolis.
JEANNE NORBERG introduced Carl Behnke, chef at Westwood, the home of Purdue President Jischke. He opened his comments by saying that he was going to "talk Turkey" to everyone! His research shows that the first Thanksgiving was a three-day secular harvest festival. There would have been no potatoes, sugar, corn, beef, milk, cheese, eggs or pumpkin pie on the menu. They probably had seafood, turkey, goose or duck with lots of boiled or roasted root vegetables. After suggesting three types of menus, traditional, southern and gourmet, he gave us cooking tips to make our preparations safer and easier.
