For a little bit of history--Our pilgrims held the first Thanksgiving feast to celebrate the successful fall harvest, for which they were very thankful.  This was the beginning of our celebration of Thanksgiving in America.  Let each of us take time to be thankful and reflect on all we have received during the past years.

We, as a club, are thankful for all the things that we do to help those in need.  DASI, the Homestead, the hospitals, and our military, to name a few are grateful for our help.  I know we will continue to help them during our club year.  We can’t forget our Special State Project, C.A.S.A.  I had the great experience of witnessing my husband being sworn in as a C.A.S.A. volunteer advocate.  It was a very impressive ceremony and I must say that I’m very proud of my husband.  After meeting the staff, I can assure you that they really appreciate all the things the women’s clubs do for them.  Each thing we donate makes a difference in the lives of the children in Foster Care.

Thank you to all who helped at Heaven Hill’s Pumpkin Festival.  This fund raiser helps us make money, so we can “give it away!”  Anne and Val, our Education co-chairs have been working very hard and have announced our newest scholarship to be given to a woman over 35 years old returning to college.  This is exciting to be able to recognize someone returning to school at this age.  Thank you, Anne and Val.

Hope all of you enjoyed a Happy Thanksgiving..

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
