Noord – A most original Thanksgiving celebration took place at Caribbean Palm Village Resort just recently when activities coordinator Farley Croes orchestrated a Trivial Pursuit Contest during the manager’s cocktail party testing guests’ knowledge of the holiday and its origins.
Guests learned a lot and laughed a lot, as Farley conducted his quiz with questions such as: What is the name of the Wampanoag Indian Chief who first celebrated Thanksgiving with the colonialists? Massasoit. And which American president proclaimed a national Thanksgiving day? Abraham Lincoln. Pictured here scenes from the weekly popular cocktail party in which guests are invited to mingle with resort executives over drinks and games, including face painting, every Tuesday.
The resort, in its 26th anniversary year, is home-away-from-home for many Aruba repeat visitors, who enjoy their annual visits to the island today, as much as they did on the day they first purchased their condo units.
