On November 23, all second graders in the Babylon Elementary School celebrated the holiday with their own Thanksgiving feast. The six classes began the festivities by entertaining the crowd with several songs, singing under the direction of music teacher Colleen Angerami.

After the performance, student Kaitlyn Kelly spoke about her lineage tracing back to the Pilgrims, most notably William Bradford, the leader of the Plymouth colony in Massachusetts. Bradford wrote Of Plymouth Plantation, which is purportedly the single most complete authority for the story of the Pilgrims and the early years of the colony they founded.

The activities concluded with parents, grandparents and students alike enjoying the holiday feast. It was a fun morning for all involved.
