When the Fuddruckers on North Reserve announced they would be closing it left many wondering what the future would hold for the Goodfellows Club and the free Thanksgiving meals they provide each year.

Well, we have the answer and it's a bit of a bummer. There will be no Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Fuddruckers would provide the building and services for the meal in the past - but no Fuddruckers this year means no turkey and the fixings.

The news means the absence of 500 Thanksgiving Day meals in the community.

But if a positive can be taken from the situation - Goodfellows will now put the donations that were meant for Thanksgiving meals toward their Christmas Food Box deliveries.

The search is on for a new location where the Goodfellows Club can hold their Thanksgiving dinner next year.
