Heber Hunt Elementary School had its 12th annual Thanksgiving Feast on Tuesday, Nov. 26, in the school's gym.

It featured a traditional turkey dinner and a vocal music performance by second grade students.

Special guests included Sedalia police and fire department personnel, Sedalia 200 administrators, state Rep. Brad Pollitt and Mark Bare, a Heber Hunt alum from 1968-74 who currently lives in Overland Park, Kansas.

Bare has family in Sedalia and came over to help serve the meal with members of First United Methodist Church.
