Thanksgiving Day at the Hellenic American Union
Our young friends celebrated Thanksgiving at a special event planned just for them! In our library they learned the story of the first Thanksgiving in North America, and enjoyed finding out about traditional Thanksgiving celebrations in the United States and Canada. They learned the value of being grateful for what they have, and got in the spirit of the celebration by decorating a paper turkey with their “Thank You” messages for all they have and enjoy.
By learning the story of Thanksgiving, they had the chance to find out about the decisive role and contribution of the Native Americans, and they did not miss the opportunity to write a “Thank You” message for them on papyrus, not in English, but in one of the languages of the Native Americans!
