Robert Ihle's culinary arts students at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center recently participated in a holiday tradition that helps out the community.
The Lockport Salvation Army delivered 40 turkeys to the Orleans/Niagara BOCES center for the students to roast, carve and prepare for their Thanksgiving dinner as they have over the last several years.
"We really enjoy doing this for a number of reasons," Ihle said. "Not only do the students get valuable skills on how to prepare the bird, they are giving back to the community and ensuring that those less fortunate are able to enjoy a traditional holiday meal. We are always glad to help out."
