Just in time for Christmas, we’ve got photos from Thanksgiving, or, more accurately, “Thankspigging,” the community feast held every year in Coral Bay, St. John. Power and phone service are only now coming back to the far side of the little island — three months after two Category Five hurricanes tore through.
Thankspigging organizer Ken Yolman said there was no way Hurricane Irma was going to stop him from hosting his annual potluck Thanksgiving dinner — the 17th this year — where everyone is invited to share a free, communal meal with their neighbors.
“Of course we were going to have it!” Ken said. “It’s more needed this year, for sure, with so many people without kitchens, or roofs…” Or homes.
