“There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American.”
Thursday is a day off for our Ark Valley Voice crew.
We wish you and yours a wonderful day of feasting, family, and fellowship, shaped by gratitude for our blessings and aware always of “His providence,” as George Washington said in his proclamation of the first National Thanksgiving in 1789:
…”for the great degree of tranquility, union and plenty, which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge, and, in general, for all the great and various favors, which He has been pleased to confer upon us.”
