Time for me to give thanks

Christmas is over, but I believe this is still the season and reason for giving, so I am going to give many accolades to persons who without asking have helped me in my journey to the who-knows-where.

Without using their names, I will start from the top, as they are all top people. None are better than the others. I am honored and in debt to all. We all have a duty to help one another and it would be a better world if more practiced this.

We veterans need to give thanks to a veteran Marine starting an outreach program to help vets to get associated with the VA. If you’re having a problem, go to the outreach located on Highway 491 just past the new location of Hospice. It is also a place to gather for vets to gather to relax. Some of those that were not called to serve drop in and volunteer to help with tasks, if nothing more than driving a vet to a medical facility.

I have many others to extend my thanks to, but the Free Press has only so many pages. It would take up the whole paper to mention them all.

Wasn’t that a great parade we had for Veterans Day? Thank the Elks for their great dinner and of course the Legion for breakfast.

There are a great many good people I this community. They should all get together more often. They do a lot of good no one hears about.

Thanks, everyone, you are great friends and very comforting to know.
