Dear Friends, Thanksgiving is the time we gather with family and friends to give thanks for our many Blessings. In his Thanksgiving Day proclamation on October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln said, “The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. …”
We also give thanks to the brave men and woman in our Armed Forces and their families that sacrifice so much to preserve liberty and freedom, at home and around the world.
Christine, Michael Jr., Mary Christine and Anthony join me in wishing you and your family a Blessed Thanksgiving.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich
