Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.
It is traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal which often includes a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables.
The Mignet students enjoyed a similiar menu at the Restaurant Le Cintra, with home made cranberry sauce and pumpkin pies made by some of the Mums.
It was a fun afternoon - learning about this tradition and its history ,getting to know tutor partners and giving thanks for everything we are blessed with .
The students worked on a ’Unity quilt’ project that we will soon put together and present to the ’Cantine’ team of the College to express our thanks to them for the delicious and nutritious meals they prepare throughout the year !
