While we cherish our blessings, let us recall our heritage with pride. The first Thanksgiving lasted for three days and was celebrated with enthusiasm. Captain Myles Standish paraded his group of soldiers in a series of maneuvers; all marched except Governor Bradford and Elder William Brewster. Blank volleys were fired and bugles sounded. A kind of croquet game, was played. Massasoit, chief of the Wampanoags, was invited and came with 90 braves who competed against the settlers in racing and jumping games. The Indians showed their bow and arrow marksmanship, and the white men exhibited their skill with firearms. The menu was extensive and the food abundant. The Indian braves had added five deer to the store of meat already brought in by a four-man shooting party. They had venison, duck, gr ose, seafood, eels, white bread, corn bread, leeks, watercress, and a variety of greens. Wild plums and dried berries were served for dessert. Although turkeys were plentiful, there is no record that they were eaten on this first Thanksgiving holiday. Other favorites of the modern Thanksgiving, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie were certainly II II available in their raw state, but were not listed as part of the meal. Although the earliest ob- servance of Thanksgiving was by the Pilgrims in 1621 at Plymouth, Massacheussets, the first national Thanksgiving proclamation was issued by George Washington in 1789, the year of his inauguration. He said in part: "Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th of November next, to be devoted by the people of these United States to the service of that great and glorious being, who is the Benificent Author of all the good that was, that is or that will be; and that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind protection of these people of this country." On this Thanksgiving, 1980, we, as our Pilgrim forefathers did back in 1621, give thanks to God for our American heritage and for the many blessings he bestows on us every day of our lives. We have many reasons to celebrate on Thanksgiving -- one of the most important being our American citi- zenship. It's a blessing, too, that we are living in this lovely area of northern Sonoma County -- among the nicest people you could find anywhere- and to whom we wish the happiest Thanksgiving Day ever. -- JC I I l Letters to the Editor Open letter Editor :. Now that the excitement and furor of the election is over, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, the people of Sonoma County, for selecting me as your next judge in Department One of the Sonoma County Municipal Court Without your willingness to go to the polls and exercise your right to vote, my election would not have been possible. I also want to thank the many people who worked so very hard on my campaign - - those who helped to make and put up the signs, those who worked at the cam- paign headquarters, lhose who walked door Io door on my behalf, those who distributed literature, those who donated their resources and time, an those who put signs on their property. Without people willing to become involved in the political process and willing to support it, there would be no victory to celebrate I would like to par- fidence to support me. ticularly thank Bob Dale, a Sincerely, candid in I he June .

As many if you know, our City Ad-. ministrator, Bud Groom has had some surgery. I thought I should pass along the word that he is convalescing very well and is in tip-top shape and is looking forward to being back at work as soon as possible. We had a very poor tur- nout for the HUD Grant Public Heari_ng on November 18, 1980. It was very disappointing to see so few citizens attending when this grant is so important to our little city. Does everyone know we are trying to obtain a grant from HUD to put in a large 300,000 gallon reservoir up above School Street? This will improve , the city's position for fh'e +- fighting, and rate of use in extremely hot weather; which we get our share of in the summer! For anyone i II I City Clerk's Nati Wild Turk Nov.

We are getting our proposed bus sytem worked Signs will start to go up all over town sometime soon Thought I'd mention the fact that the second reading adopted the new Ordinance No. 364-80 prohibiting urination and defecation in public places and places open to public view, and prohibiting exposure for the same purpose, making violation a misdemeanor. This ordinance was brought November 11, 1980, and 30 days from then, on December 11, 1980, the Ordinance will become law It's too bad that things of this sort have got to be outlined in law for people isn't it? The holidays are coming on fast aren't they? The City is making arrangements to start putting up their Christmas decorations. We have to get special in so we can decorations up makes Cloverd, though. : sur" ,week, if I ,flu, colds, house, and ,Choir Festival ,Never a dull Cloverdale, is Yuletide events for Redwood Empire Forty-four holiday festivals, musical events and Christmas fairs are included in a Yuletide list compiled by the Redwood Empire Association.
