A Modern Thanksgiving Wherever you are, you could celebrate Thanksgiving today. Not the Thanksgiving of a bountiful harvest before the long winter, the holiday of pilgrims and pie. That's a holiday of scarcity averted. I'm imagining something else... A modern Thanksgiving would celebrate two things: The people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference, and... The opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing. The ability to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create. There are more of both now than there have ever been before. [...]
This weekend marked our 5th Annual 5K Gobbler Run and Family Fun Walk. The weather could not have been any better for the race with sunny skies and warm temperatures. With over 200 runners and plenty of walkers, this years 5K was our most successful Gobbler Run to date. We would like to thank all of our racers, walkers, and sponsors for helping us raise funds for our Strong Kids Campaign this year. We hope to see you next year! http://www.tnteventmanagement.com/Results/2011/RESULTS%20GOBBLER%202011.HTM

Do you know my favorite thing about Thanksgiving? Blue Feather dinner. I have a proposition to all of our fellow campers, staff, and alumni. Wear your favorite banquet shirt this Thursday and don't be afraid to belt out your favorite village cheer. Wear green, wear red, or wear blue and this way our entire camp family can enjoy Thanksgiving together. Please have a safe and enjoyable holiday and Happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at camp!
