Did You Know?
Facts, Figures &
Folklore about the Pilgrims
& America’s Thanksgiving

Nov 12 : 13 days till Thanksgiving

Did you know that half of the 110 Pilgrims who had left England in 1620 survived that first year in the New World?

In their second year, however, the Pilgrims flourished with plentiful food sources, thanks in large part to the friendship and guidance of an Abnaki Indian named Squanto.

Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, a time for family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. We are delighted to invite you to partake in our Thanksgiving celebration. Our table is full this year, but we always have room for one more! So join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday November 26th.
