Thanksgiving: An American Immigrant tale

 

 

 

Autumn is now in full swing and it’s the time of the year we give thanks.

 

 

 

We thank our veterans and serving military for 2 minutes every November 11 and at the end of the month we celebrate thanksgiving.

 

 

 

The Pilgrims celebrated “First Thanksgiving” October 1621. It’s the original American immigration story. Europeans came to another country with no support, no idea if it would work. All they knew it was going to a better opportunity. When things got bad, the locals with food welcomed them. It was the first harvest and success story for these immigrants.

 

 

 

It’s a story we tell and carrying on this story every year of thanks. It’s a tradition that came from a dinner that happened nearly 400 years ago.

 

 

 

Over the next year we at ripple effects Artists will carry on with our immigration stories. With award-winning writer Ina Chadwick’s “where the streets a paved with gold” evening on November 18th {https://ripple-effect-artists-inc.ticketleap.com/when-the-streets/dates/Nov-18-2019_at_0800PM} to our production of Sue Bigelow and Janice Goldberg ROSE COLORED GLASS in 2020.
