FEATURED EVENT DividedWe Fall: Restoring the Commonweal WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 6:30PM WINE RECEPTION, 7:00PM TALK The nation is now no less divided than it was before November 8, 2016. Each side sees the other as un-American aliens.We share a land but not a commonweal. It took decades to reach this turbulent impasse and there is no overnight solution. There is, however, a way to begin. Hodding Carter III, (*57), a Princeton UniversityWoodrowWilson School graduate, has been deeply involved in public life and public affairs journalism since he went home to Mississippi from the Marines in 1959. A prize-winning newspaperman at his family’s daily during the height of the civil rights revolution, he led efforts to eliminate segregation at the 1976 Democratic National Convention, securing Mississippi’s first interracial delegation. Carter joined President Jimmy Carter’s administration as U.S Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs between 1977 and 1980. Nationally, Carter is perhaps best remembered as the spokesman for the U.S. State Department during the Iran hostage crisis in the late 1970s.Thereafter he became the Op-Ed columnist for The Wall Street Journal and a regular participant on “This Week with David Brinkley” as well as other TV news and public affairs shows. In the early 1990s, he was a tenured professor at the University of Maryland. Carter served on the Princeton University Board of Trustees between 1983 and 1998. He has won numerous national journalism awards, including four Emmys, and is the author of two books and contributor to nine others. Carter was named president and CEO of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation until 2006, to become a Professor of Public Policy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he currently lives. HostWendy Gerber. Free for members; $15 for guests.

Plymouth Rock feast.There would be venison and an array of fish which were abundant in the New England area, including herring, shad, cod, sea bass and eel. Native to America, corn or maize, came in a wide variety such as red, yellow, white and blue, and would certainly have been on the Pilgrim’s table, as would peas, squashes and beans. Pumpkins, which were easy to grow and stored well through the winter, were also a favorite of the early settlers. Ninety one percent of Americans eat the big bird on Thanksgiving every year.That translates to 45 million turkeys consumed on one day! So regardless of the early dishes of baked eels and today’s candied yams, one thing is for certain:Thanksgiving is about family tradition and is an important day in American culture. So why not start a new tradition and join us here at the Club for our spectacular Thanksgiving buffet, where I’m certain there will be something for everyone. On this day, we remember that what’s on the table takes second place to who is around it.
