Arena Stage Hosting Military Families For Thanksgiving

Two hundred service men and women and their relatives will gather Friday evening for a special Thanksgiving meal and performance at Arena Stage in Southwest Washington.

Arena stage is hosting the families for a meal and a performance of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton will be in attendance. She says the event is a way to show service men and women that people in the city are thinking about them and are thankful for their service.

"Remember we have a volunteer army and that means that they're stepping up for everyone else who's stepping back," she says.

Norton says expressing that gratitude is especially important over the holidays when military families may be far from home.
