For a number of years, Thomas Jayne and Richmond Ellis have organized an unusual Thanksgiving celebration in Central Park. A gathering of friends, now about 50, assemble at the Pilgrim statue in the park to lay a wreath of corn. They read a description of the first Thanksgiving written by Edward Winslow in 1621. This coming together celebrates our collective bounty and remembers the sacrifices made by so many that have allowed us to be so blessed.
