From Our Family to Yours By: Ellen Filley


Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family, friends and loved ones.  Gathering around the dinner table, we enjoy the bountiful feast prepared by the family chefs.  We enjoy exciting football (Go Pack) and holiday parades. We give thanks for all of our blessings and wish for you and your family to have a wonderful and safe Holiday.
