The Lion’s Tale

Published: Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 11:57 AM.

The national holiday of Thanksgiving really stems from the feast held in the autumn of 1621, by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.  Chief Massasoit brought ninety warriors to the feast and it lasted three days.  The meal consisted of deer, corn, shellfish, and roasted meat, far from today's traditional Thanksgiving feast.

Students in the first and second grade at Faith Christian School will reenact the Pilgrims’ adventures at 9:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 20 in the auditorium.

Everyone is invited to attend!
