Beaufort Academy Preschool held its annual Thanksgiving play entitled “The Pilgrims Come to America” on Nov. 20. The traditional play came complete with pilgrim men, women, turkeys, corn and Native Americans. Following the play the children invited their family and friends indoors for a roasted turkey lunch with all the Thanksgiving fixings.
