EVENT, T-Giving Day hike & b-fast [M]

When: Thursday, November 24, 2005
6:30 AM - Hike
8:00 AM - Breakfast

Where: First Congregational Church
400 North Fourth Avenue
Maywood, Illinois
The Maywood 125th Anniversary Committee encourages folks to join the hike - and carry on a village tradition by a congregation older than our village. Start your day of Thanksgiving with exercise and fellowship and still have plenty of time to put your turkey in the oven!

One Thanksgiving Day, well over 100 years ago now, the Youth of the Congregational Church and of the Baptist Church in Maywood joined together for an early morning hike through the woods along the Des Plaines River to marvel at God's Creation and to give Thanks. Following the hike they continued their Christian Fellowship around the breakfast table. Through the years this Thanksgiving Tradition has continued at the First Congregational Church of Maywood and this year is no exception
