On the evening of Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017, dozens of people celebrated Thanksgiving in the the North Pod of the Memorial Union at the University of Maine to celebrate the annual Multicultural Thanksgiving potluck. Hosted and organized by the Office of Multicultural Student Life (OMSL) and the Student Heritage Alliance Council (SHAC), the purpose of this event was to celebrate and share the real meaning of Thanksgiving by bringing together people of all religions, cultures and ethnicities for a diverse meal. “This event is a great way to meet new people and experience foods and traditions from other countries and cultures. The wide variety and range of ethnic foods meantthat there was something for everybody, and there was a great turnout,” Toni Tello, a first-year student, said.
