Mayasari to hold free-will donation Thanksgiving dinner


“All the food will be made by hand. We could buy it in a store, but it wouldn’t mean the same,” Maya said. “We are shredding the turkeys and have many volunteers to help with cooking.”

Maya said the kindness of the Fogle family made a big difference to her when she was new to America and now that she has a restaurant, she wants to have her whole family, friends and customers together for one big meal and good company. Maya said she particularly wants to invite anyone who may be alone for the holidays and let them know there is a place to go where they will be warmly welcomed.

According to Maya, as soon as she and Richard began talking about holding the free-will donation Thanksgiving meal, they were flooded with people wanting to help. Maya said she has been blown away by the number of people volunteering their time or donating food to help bring the event to fruition. O’Mara Foods donated six turkeys and the other two were donated by April and Tom Buck.

“Thank you to all the volunteers that will be helping,” Maya said. “It means a lot to us to have the help and support.”

The Consulate General of Indonesia attending the grand opening ceremony at Mayasari in June, offering Maya the official support of her native country. Someone from the consulate’s office will be attending the Thanksgiving meal as well, but in an unofficial capacity, like family members supporting each other.

Reservations are not required for the meal, but with the expected amount of people attending, they are highly recommended and requested by Maya. Making a reservation will ensure that each family has enough time and space to enjoy their meal in comfort. Maya suggested planning 20 to 30 minutes time in which to eat. To make a reservation, please call 812-222-6292.
