Students board 'Mayflower' for Thanksgiving lesson


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Some young explorers boarded the "Mayflower" for an early Thanksgiving. Instead of being made of wood and floating, the ship was a bit more modern.

The students and families of Children's Christian Academy climbed aboard a Mayflower moving van to grab a nice Thanksgiving lunch.

Children dressed up as pilgrims and Native Americans as they ate turkey and celebrated Thanksgiving.

Among the lessons for the students was that the first Thanksgiving feast in 1621 lasted three days, providing enough food for 13 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans.

Hello, Murray Transfer and Storage provided the truck for this lunch. We do this every year for several schools and we are proud to do it. The fun that these children have and the learning lesson is what makes us proud to be able to provide this service for them. Happy Thanksgiving to all from Murray Transfer and Storage/Mayflower.
