  Happy Thanksgiving

(Holidays) ThanksgivingBanner.jpg

Feeling and being thankful can sometimes be difficult. I have friends who exude thankfulness and joy every time I see them. Children who've graced me with their joyous presence over the years have become beautiful adults, despite life's bumps.  Some friends are mixtures, like most of us with good days and "off" days. One dear friend fights to overcome panic attacks and back pain yet is still grateful for small kindnesses. Recently tragedy entered the lives of close relatives and still they summon the strength to work through the challenge and practice being thankful. For all of you parents practicing the art of good parenting I am thankful, for you are guiding our next citizens and leaders.  I wish for you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

We are still activating posts on our calendar so be sure to check the online calendar for more events over the weekend.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend with family and friends and again, thank you for being fine parents! Parmalee
