I would like to take a moment to wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving. For me, this was always a weekend of family, food and fellowship. Growing up, we gathered at my grandparent’s home for a progressive dinner through the weekend with neighbors and friends, starting with traditional dinner on Thanksgiving and finishing with turkey soup made from the carcasses on Sunday afternoon. In between was sandwich night on Friday and turkey hash on Saturday, each meal being hosted by a different neighbor.
It is my hope that you will be able to celebrate this uniquely American holiday with family and friends by your side and give thanks for all the gifts we have been blessed with this year.
Also, if you are planning to start shopping for gifts this weekend, please try to shop locally this season and support our small businesses. Saturday, November 30th is the tenth annual nationwide Small Business Saturday. This day is meant to bring attention to the important movement towards small businesses and to support entrepreneurs in our communities. We have a number of great shops and restaurants across Southeastern Connecticut that you can visit.
