Two of the Chilean miners rescued after spending 69 days trapped underground in a 2010 Chilean mine accident are making a trip to Plymouth on Wednesday.
According to Plimoth Plantation spokeswoman Jennifer Monac, the plantation received a call late last week, and learned that MetroWest ESL, an English as a second language program, was welcoming two of the miners to the United States.
Monac says the two miners are Florencio Avalos Silva, the first miner rescued, and Omar Rojas, the 17th man rescued back on October 13th, 2010.
The two men will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, and tour the plantation and the museum to learn more about the indigenous cultures and early colonial history in New England, as well as meet and greet guests inside the Henry Hornblower Visitor Center around 5 p.m.
