Dressing for the Occasion
To add more meaning to the celebration of the first Thanksgiving, peers and staff will don Indian headdresses with feathers and Pilgrim hats for the lavish Thanksgiving meal to be served on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving 2013.
During the past week, the history of that first Thanksgiving celebration has been shared with peers. Now the use of historical dress and a traditional Thanksgiving meal will help bring history alive and make the holiday more festive.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
