Thanksgiving at
Arcosanti is celebrated with a pot-luck dinner in the Cafe. A lot of people prepare their traditional family recipe and a
wonderful selection of mouth-watering dishes appear every year. Ira
Murfin toasts to a good year where much was accomplished, to our
founder Paolo Soleri and all the good people that are part of the
Arcosanti Project. [Photo & text: sa]

The turkeys were
raised in the Arcosanti gardens. Two of the five birds were weighed in
at 40 pds each. Arcosanti Agriculture manager Adam Nordfors proudly
displays this giant bird. [Photo & text: sa]

A wonderful aroma
that only belongs to Thanksgiving, wafts through the whole Cafe and Crafts III building. It was a little bit like home with people
drifting in and out of the kitchen all day long just for a little whiff
of the delicious smells. [Photo & text: sa]

Many Alumni and some
family members came to visit. Paolo Soleri graced us with his presence.
