Guide to Thanksgiving Day ActivitiesThe turkey is in the oven, the side dishes are waiting to be heated, and everyone is sitting in front of the TV screen waiting through three hours of pre-game commentary before the kick off.

Getting into the Community as a FamilyAt the time of the year-end holidays, when many of us are reveling in the joy of abundance and being able to generously provide for ourselves, we are fully aware of how much we have. Thanksgiving and the winter holidays remind us to step back and think about why we are so contented. What if we didn’t have good health, ample food, warm beds, or hot showers?

Family Guide to Beardsley ZooPack a lunch and enjoy a day at the Zoo. Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is Connecticut’s only zoo. The zoo has new animals and a new play ground this year. Check out the museum pass from your local library to enjoy free zoo admission for up to two adults and four children. The zoo is the perfect size to enjoy on a nice day. The exhibits concentrate on animals in both North and South America. The free-roaming peacocks and guinea hens may lead to an animal encounter anywhere on the zoo grounds. Animal tracks painted on the zoo paths help little ones find the next display.
