Thanksgiving is that time of year when we come together and break bread with one another and are mindful of what we are thankful about. Projectmates has long worked with our clients - hand in hand - for the best product, and we want to acknowledge their insight and creativity with suggesting new features to be added. Also, we wouldn’t be here without you.

The following is a brief history of Thanksgiving starting with the “First Thanksgiving” being celebrated by the pilgrims and Wampanoag Native Americans in 1621. Although this was the first occurrence in the Americas with a communal celebratory meal, it wasn’t considered a national holiday until 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed it a national holiday to be held in November.

In 1939, President Franklin D Roosevelt moved the holiday up one week in an attempt to increase retail sales during the great depression. This created a public backlash and was deemed as Franksgiving until it was reluctantly changed back to the fourth Thursday in November.

The Thanksgiving dishes served over the many past thanksgivings have ranged from venison and oysters to turkey and gravy, and over the years many new traditions have been added to this community holiday from parades to football and songs with dances, but one constant is the same, and that is thankfulness.


Thank you to all our clients we always welcome your feedback and enjoy the partnership that continually propels construction project management software forward.
