Why We’re Thankful
Here at JNPA, we’re proud to serve as a non-profit partner of some of our nation’s most treasured public lands. So in honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to take a moment to list some of the many things we’re thankful for.
Thanksgiving’s Complicated History
Every schoolkid will tell you about the origins of Thanksgiving. How the Pilgrims in Massachusetts shared a late autumn feast with members of the Wampanoag nation after the colonists’ first harvest in 1621. How the celebration became an annual tradition commemorated throughout the growing nation. And how Thanksgiving Day was eventually declared a national holiday that Americans still honor around the family dinner table.
Sound like what you learned in school?
♫”Well it goes from St. Louis, down to Missouri…”♫
What better way to celebrate the upcoming 96th anniversary of Route 66 than with a cool new license plate for your road car? And since St. Louis is the largest city along Route 66 between Chicago and Los Angeles, this is a perfect time to sign up for a license plate commemorating the town’s beloved icon, the Gateway Arch.
Honoring our Veterans
The National Park Service is among many federal agencies that strive to honor the service of current and former military personnel and their families. In honor of Veteran’s Day, Gateway Arch National Park, along with the Gateway Arch Park Foundation, will be hold a commemorative event honoring the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. military veterans.
