DAR Volunteers assist with the First Thanksgiving at Berkeley Plantation

On Sunday, November 1, 14 volunteers from the Williamsburg Chapter, NSDAR, assisted with the activities at Berkeley Plantation's annual First Thanksgiving Day festivities. Dressed in 18th-century attire, the volunteers did a multitude of jobs including meet and greet, dipping candles, corn husk doll making and so on. At day's end the staff at Berkeley provided a lovely dinner for the Board of Directors and DAR volunteers. In spite of the "English" like weather, the crowds swelled to over 1,000.
