From the days of the Pilgrims’ first bountiful harvest to the present, America has been a goodly land. Thanksgiving r-eminds us that our lives are rich, and that our op portunities are many in this land of freedom and plenty. On the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims, bearing Bibles and muskets, went forth to place of meeting to offer up prayers of gratitude for their blessings against a background of wilderness perils. Girded then spiritually and materially against all dangers, they serve, yet, today as our example to be girded—as were they—against all forces that imperil our land and the heritage of its freedom. Symbolizing the rich endowment of Americans from the day® of the Pilgrim Fathers to the present, is this photograph of Fir®' stone Wesleyan Methodist Church, near the Plant.
