Let the Thanksgiving Festivities Begin!

Thanksgiving is mostly seen as an American festivity, yet it is celebrated in communities all over the world. Our InterNations’ Communities have been putting their own spin on Thanksgiving this year. An upcoming activity with the Cologne Asean Culture and Cuisine Group promises to be a fun, unique way to celebrate this holiday. Join the festivities on Thursday, 28 November at the restaurant Qing Dao, and spend the evening enjoying Asian cuisine with some new friends.

The Manama Coffee Group are going to be busy this month, thanks to their activity host Rick Herrig, who has not one but two Thanksgiving activities lined up. Come join other members for a Thanksgiving Day meal on Thursday, 28 November. The traditional celebration will be held at Ric's Kountry Kitchen and is sure to be a cozy activity with delicious food. If you can’t make it, you can always join members for the American Black Friday Shopping and Thanksgiving Buffet on Friday, 29 November. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy a post-Thanksgiving meal and go shopping for good deals with fellow members.
