With Thanksgiving coming up this month it is a great time to reflect on all that is good in our lives. It is time when families come together to celebrate life and love. It is also a good time to recognize those in need. Commit to visiting a food pantry, soup kitchen or sponsor a family for Thanksgiving. If you don't have the time, why not buy someone a turkey while at the grocery store? Think of ways to show gratitude through random acts of kindness. If you are looking to take baby steps start by sending thank you cards. Look for ways in your everyday life to show others appreciation. Giving to others is the fastest way to enrich your life.
Wishing you all a H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G!

WHERE IN THE WORLD…Plymouth, MA
Plymouth, Massachusetts is also known as “America’s Hometown” and as the birthplace of Thanksgiving.
Plymouth holds a very important place in our nation’s history. Most Americans know the story of the Pilgrims voyage across the Atlantic aboard the Mayflower, their landing at Plymouth Rock and the founding of the first colony in 1620 (New England). The town has served as the backdrop for several historical events, the most notable being the First Thanksgiving feast.
Though still an active port, today Plymouth is best known as a tourist destination. The town is home to several notable sites that tourists enjoy.
Plymouth Rock is said to be the disembarkation site of the Pilgrims.
Plimoth Plantation is a living history museum and consists of a re-creation of the Plymouth settlement in 1627. There is also a replica of a 17th century Wampanoag homesite.
The Mayflower II is a full-size replica of the Mayflower, the ship which brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth.
The population is 56,468 according to the 2010 U.S. Census.
