Local Students Give Thanks

NOVEMBER 16, 2005 -- Lunchtime at a local elementary school means a trip into the past for a Thanksgiving feast.

Carolina Beach Elementary students joined with their parents and teachers in learning about the meaning of Thanksgiving.

While enjoying a lunch of turkey and all the trimmings, students donned hand-made costumes.

Sitting down to their Thanksgiving meal dressed as Native Americans or Pilgrims, the students learned about the first meal that started the holiday and about the importance of sharing.
