Thanks for Thanksgiving

While enjoying your delicious Thanksgiving dinner this year, remember to take time and give thanks for the good family and food around the table.

  • Bring a dish or bottle of wine to share with your party. Let the hosts know how much you appreciate the effort (and food) by bringing something to enjoy with them.
  • Lend a hand wherever one may be needed. Whether you're setting the dinner table or entertaining the kids, keep the day stress-free by pitching in when you can.
  • Take a moment to share what you're thankful for this year. With full bellie's and smiling faces surrounding you it's easy to remember how moments like this are what we're really thankful for.
  • Volunteer at a soup kitchen if you have any extra time at all during Thanksgiving. Help make somebody else's day special by donating some of your effort and time.
