Gail Kesslar's Shared Thanksgiving

Last week we told you about a really cool program that brings together families over Thanksgiving. It's called Share Thanksgiving, and the idea is to match established Canadian families with immigrant families for Thanksgiving Dinner. It's happening across the country, including right here in Saskatchewan. Gail Kesslar is from Swift Current, she heard about the program and signed up. She told Saskatoon Morning Leisha Grebinski about the experience.
