For many Americans, the Thanksgiving meal includes seasonal dishes such as roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. The holiday feast dates back to November 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “first Thanksgiving.” But what was really on the menu at the famous banquet, and which of today’s time-honored favorites didn’t earn a place at the table until later in the holiday’s 400-year history?  Come to the United Methodist Women’s Circle of Friends gathering, Wednesday, November 29 to learn how the first menu was created with the food source available.  The Circle gathers at noon in the Fireside Room.  Bring a sack lunch.  Beverages and dessert are provided.
