A message from our Executive Director

This month we celebrate Thanksgiving, traditionally a time to reflect on all we are grateful for.

Vaccination rates are rising, and case numbers are coming down, and we can now come together for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. November is truly a month where we acknowledge everything we have to be thankful for.

November is also National Veteran and Military Families Month, with Veterans Day celebrated on the 11th. In the spirit of the month, our gratitude extends to veterans, their families, and the sacrifices they make for us all.
