HAPPY THANKSGIVING

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND YOURS 
FROM ALL OF US AT DRL!
MAY YOUR BLESSINGS BE ENDLESS 
AND MAY YOUR HEART OVERFLOW.
