A New Gretna Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Our New Gretna History Committee publishes an historical newsletter called "The Bass River Gazette". You can read the article on "A New Gretna Thanksgiving" by Elaine Mathis at http://bassriver-nj.org/pdf/h-gazette20--oct-2007.pdf (See page2).


Rye Allen (standing to right of cranberry barrel) and some or his workers by his New Gretna cranberry bog. Bet that barrel of berries would make a lot of great cranberry sauce. Anyone out there with a good homemade cranberry sauce recipe is encouraged to send it in, especially if it comes from New Gretna. (See email address at the top of the blog.)
