As always, we need plenty of volunteers as we approach the holidays. Our lodge tends to be booked on a daily basis during this time, and our regular volunteers get spread thin with all there is to do. Please contact the lodge if you have some time to spare. I look forward to seeing you all at the lodge during this holiday season.
Keep an eye out for the children's Christmas Party and New Year's. I'm especially looking forward to seeing our gorgeous models at our Men's Fashion Show on November 18th.
Thank you all again for your contributions to the lodge!
Jennifer Cory, Exalted Ruler
It is thought that the first Thanksgiving was celebrated to give thanks to God for helping the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony survive their first brutal winter in New England. The first Thanksgiving feast lasted three days providing enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans. The feast consisted of fowl, venison, fish, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, and squash. William Bradford's note that, "besides waterfowl, there was a great store of wild turkeys, of which they took many," probably gave rise to the American tradition of eating turkey at Thanksgiving.
