A TIME FOR GIVING THANKS

Join us and celebrate Thanksgiving,
a time for family, and giving thanks.

Although primarily a North American holiday,
Thanksgiving is celebrated on different days in these countries:

Canada -- 2nd Monday in October
Liberia -- 1st Thursday in November
Norfolk Island -- Last Wednesday in November
USA -- 4th Thursday in November (TOMORROW!)

Whatever your country, where ever you are,
celebrate a reason for being thankful,
and count your blessings.

The origins of Thanksgiving in America
are generally attributed to the early colonists'
first successful harvest (est. 1621),
along with the Wampanoag Indians
who shared so many survival techniques
with the first Americans.
