Noemi Pascuel-Martinez, 6, embodies the Thanksgiving Day spirit as she enjoys a dinner she helped make as part of the Marco Island YMCA's after school program for children from Manatee Elementary School. Local children also enjoyed the Wednesday afternoon feast, which also featured a talk from a 'pilgrim' on the origins of Thanksgiving Day. Children also brought in canned goods that will be donated to the Harry Chapin Food Bank via Publix.
