Philipstown Continues Thanksgiving Tradition
Candlelight service at Chapel of Our Lady Restoration will be followed by feast at the Tavern
L ike all great traditions, the Thanksgiving Candlelight Service and Putnam County Historical Society Thanksgiving Dinner is older than most of its participants. Its institution is a tribute to the Pilgrim settlers who founded this country, and the form it takes honors the same Providence that rescued them from persecution and privation.
