Members of the Student Missouri State Teachers Association at Truman State University held a Thanksgiving event at the Adair County Public Library Saturday afternoon.

Volunteers read stories about Thanksgiving dinners and Thanksgiving turkeys.

Speaking of turkeys, the elementary school students even made their own turkey hats.

While at the same time also teaching the children the meaning of giving thanks.

"We just felt like Thanksgiving is a good time in the semester for fall. There's a lot you can do with it. We like talking about what you're thankful for, being with family and friends, the values surrounding the holiday. We don't think it gets a lot of focus usually so we like to talk about it with the kids," said Student Missouri State Teachers Association President Tori Palumbo.

This is an annual event the Student Missouri State Teachers Association group puts on at the library. The group likes getting out in the community and working with kids.



They are already planning their next spring library event that is set to take place either around Valentine's Day or Easter.
