When the word “Thanksgiving” is translated into French, it becomes “Jour de l’Action de grâce”, the Day of the Action of Grace.  A celebration of the past year and the harvest.  Of “Grace” or blessings.

We celebrate Thanksgiving Monday the 8th this year.  Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 5pm, followed by a dinner of free range turkeys with all the usual accoutrements.  If you would like family or friends to join you, please notify the front desk no later than October 4th.  The charge for a guest dinner is $21.95.
