A 1786 Colonial Connecticut Thanksgiving – Scotland

November 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Governor Samuel Huntington’s 1786 Thanksgiving Proclamation states that the day be observed with praise, prayer, and “the voice of melody”. Come back to the Third Society of Windham where “no servile labour may be performed this day”. “Mehetabel Huntington” will discuss all colonial food dishes as the “Huntington family” partake of their special, period meal. A common wedding ceremony will take place and children can help with some food prep.

“Dull November brings the blast, and the leaves are whirling fast”.

Traditional demonstration.

Cost: $3.50 per person, members and children 12 and under free.
