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. It is my hope that you will also 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.
