Welcome one... Welcome all! we celebrate Thanksgiving for the 71st time this evening with great friends and wonderful music. Setting aside time to give thanks for one's blessings, along with holding feasts to celebrate a harvest, are both practices that long predate the European settlement of North America.
The first documented thanksgiving services in territory currently belonging to the United States were conducted by Spaniards and the French in the 16th century.
We are happy to add to the tradition by dancing this night away... Welcome and please enoy!
Did You Know? - The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621.
This feast lasted three days, and—as accounted by attendee Edward Winslow —it was attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims.
The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating "thanksgivings"—days of prayer thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought.

Did You Know? - You may have been taught in pre-school that a turkey goes "gobble, gobble" — but that's not entirely true. Only male turkeys, fittingly called gobblers, actually make the sound. Female turkeys cackle instead.
