Susan Sutter swings the mallet at Brookhurst Community Park on Monday in Anaheim. About 20 years ago, Sutter started the family tradition of playing croquet after Thanksgiving dinner. They ate at her Anaheim home then played down at Brookhurst Community Park. Her family has grown and gone different ways. This year she's eating with friends putting on dinner for those without relatives. Sutter is hoping to convince them all to play after dinner.
