From year to year, it seems like it rolls around quicker than we can blink our eyes.  Another Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season is upon us.   It’s a time to pause, reflect, celebrate and give thanks!  It’s a family tradition!

This year, perhaps more than most, we hope families take time to do more than just eat the turkey and dressing and watch football.  We hope they talk candidly about their goals, fears and optimism for America.  It can also be a good holiday weekend to spend time volunteering for organizations and causes you believe could use your help and kindness. 

This nation has a rich and diverse history of giving.  We are a melting pot that has faced countless challenges together.  And our success in doing so has become the envy for much of the world.

This Thanksgiving, as we gather with family and friends, let us enjoy each other’s company, give thanks for the blessing in our lives and remember those less fortunate than ourselves.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I’m Mike Murri, Vice President & General Manager
