12776.jpgA Pilgrim Thanksgiving
Tuesday, November 17, 2015 @ 7:00 P.M.

When the Pilgrims celebrated their first Thanksgiving, it was with full knowledge of what it was to experience hunger.  In the months following
their arrival, they came close at times to starving.  That they survived at all was greatly due to the help they received from the local Wampanoags. The actual day the Plymouth Colony celebrated its first Thanksgiving is unknown.  What is known is that sometime in the early fall, the Pilgrims, along with Massasoit and ninety braves "entertained and feasted" together for three days.
