From President Barbara K. D. Goeckner

 It's Thanksgiving time - already?! If you're like me, you're wondering where fall went and how we landed in the cold of winter already. Traveling in the northern part of the state I am seeing snow here and there. I must admit, the first snowfalls always look pretty - even when I'm not ready for them.

Thanksgiving is a time for us to evaluate all that has transpired during our 'harvest' of the past year. It's a time when we all gather for a dinner, with family, with friends and some of us with strangers who become friends. We get so busy with our daily lives and routines, we forget how many things we truly have to be thankful for. It's good for each of us to take a moment and think of the very basic things in our lives that help us every day.  read more. . .
