During the month of November, the Lebanon Recreation and Parks Department is hosting a "30 Days of Thankful and Grateful" event. Each day we'll post an activity for you to complete. Remember to check back each day or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! You can find this page again at LebanonNH.gov/Thankful.
