This year we will be spending Thanksgiving with family in Phoenix, Arizona. We are very thankful for the opportunity to be with immediate family over the holidays. Tomorrow, Jay will keep his annual tradition of an all day endurance group ride called Flight of the Pigs. We look forward to sharing photos.
In thinking about Thanksgiving I was reminded of the Thanksgiving stories about pilgrims gathering together with natives to celebrate the harvest with feast and community. Twice this year we have had the privilege to volunteer in native communities through the Muskoka Foundation. This organization connects travelers to the indigenous communities that they travel through.
Starting your Christmas shopping? You can support the Muskoka programs by buying a 2012 calendar for only $12.00 featuring photographs that students around the world took during this year’s photography workshops. We hosted two of those workshops, so there may be photos that we helped the students with.
