Every year for more than twenty years, the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary has created a thanksgiving feast for their animal residents. The National Charity League, a group of volunteer mothers and daughters, brought food and supplies and helped organize the event. Zoo representative Roberta Radcliff expressed that the animals get visibly excited by the exotic foods and interesting presentation. Radcliff told Zoom staff that when she invites guests to the event, she exclaims lightheartedly that they should “Put your dinner in the oven and come see the animals eat theirs.” Hundreds of people came out this year to join the animals for their special feast. The Rotary Club of Folsom, also a supporter of the animals’ holiday season, donated wrapping paper and boxes and helped zoo staff fill them with fun surprises, and wrapped them for the animals to rip open at the Holiday Party.
