Thankful Times and Fall Vibes

In 1621, the wide-eyed colonists with little knowledge of farming on the rich American soil reached to the Native Americans for help as years of experience rested on their backs. The harvest that year was plentiful, sparking joy and goodwill in the hearts of all. Over the next two days, the colonists and Native Americans celebrated with graciousness for the successful harvest. As Thanksgiving, the holiday of thanks, approaches, our Knights reminiscence on the year and everything that they are particularly grateful for. I had the opportunity to learn a bit about what some of the staff and students are thankful for this year.
