There are many ways Thanksgiving was celebrated today.
For some, it was spent enjoying a meal at the Minot Air Force Base.
Kelli Volk gives us a look at how Minot Airmen showed their appreciation to the Minot community this afternoon.
It was a day of reaching out to others.
"Happy Thanksgiving, go right through here and they'll get you seated."
A day to show appreciation one another.
It was the 44th annual day of love celebration at the Minot Air Force Base.
Minot Airmen volunteered to help serve a thanksgiving meal to senior citizens from around the area.
(Tech. Sgt. George Blake, MAFB 5th Operations Support Squadron)They can come on here, share with the airmen here. A lot of the airmen are in the same situations. I, myself, I don't have my family here so I get to spend it with the local community, so I'm very excited about that."
The guests were also pleased to share Thanksgiving with the Minot Airmen.
(Karen Johnson, Minot Resident)I am excited to be here and grateful for all of the wonderful food that we're going to have and just to be a part of it really makes Thanksgiving have its full meaning."
A full meaning and a full menu.
(Amy Filkins, MAFB Jimmy Doolittle Center Manager)"Turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, green beans, gravy, rolls and pumpkin pecan or apple pie."
The kitchen staff loaded all of the items onto trays and the airmen delivered and served the meal.
One event coordinator has been a part of the celebration since 1999....and it's a tradition she enjoys delivering year after year.
(Amy Filkins, MAFB Jimmy Doolittle Center Manager)"It's just they so appreciate it and so much for those seniors who are by themselves or, you know, just aren't able to make a meal. It's just very rewarding and a fun thing to do."
(Tech. Sgt. George Blake, MAFB 5th Operations Support Squadron)"The community in Minot is very supportive of us, so to be able to give something back to them for all of their support, it's pretty thrilling for each of us to be able to do that."
It was a day of thanks felt by the airmen and the community.

The Thanksgiving meal wasn't all that the visitors got to enjoy.
Door prizes and bingo were also a part of today's agenda.
