Happy Thanksgiving

Altho our northern neighbors like to claim Thanksgiving as their own, there were a number of other places that celebrated a Thanksgiving before Plymouth, Mass in 1621.  Florida is taking the claim currently by saying September 8, 1565 the Spaniards had a Thanksgiving at St. Augustine.   However Texas comes in saying the Spaniards celebrated in Canyon, Texas on May 1541.  The English celebrated thanksgiving in the  Berkeley hundreds Jamestown Virginia in 1619.  I am sure there are others.

Regardless who came first, the Delmar Historical and Arts Society wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.  We are grateful for the support the community has given us.
