Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Many of us start to prepare for the Thanksgiving dinner, family visits, and the beginning of the shopping chaos. What is Thanksgiving really about?

Simply, it is about "giving thanks" and being grateful for what you have. There are a number of ways you can show your thanks in the community by volunteering at the library, food bank, or shelter. Writing a letter a member or our Military is another way to give thanks. A Million Thanks organization shows year round appreciation to our U. S. Military Men and Women, past and present serving here at home, abroad, or injured in hospitals.

A thank you to show your support goes a long way.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Thanks For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home -

Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought -

Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" -
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!
