Now that the annual tryptophan feast has worn off a little and
people are avoiding the leftovers that have lived in the
refrigerator for days, it is time to remember the many blessings to
be thankful for in Morgan Hill: great weather, a beautiful place to
live and a wonderful community.
In our town, we reach out to each other and the rest of the world – whether it be through the annual dinner at St. Catherine’s Church, the Kiwanis Club gathering turkeys for the needy or any of the other countless acts of kindness that pervade the holiday season.
And, together, we reach out to the world when it needs us most through fundraising for victims of natural disasters.
In Morgan Hill, hundreds if not thousands of people unselfishly give their precious time to make community events such as the Taste of Morgan Hill, Mushroom Mardi Gras, Poppy Jasper Film Festival, Holiday Lights Parade and Safe Trick or Treat successful. Let’s be thankful community spirit is alive and well in the Mushroom City.
Our community spirit compels us to argue passionately about our vision for Morgan Hill’s future. Committed citizens have given thousands of hours to develop plans for future development of Morgan Hill’s services and attractions.
Because of their commitment and passion, we can articulate our town identity in the way we grow.
Although Thanksgiving has passed and we’re prepared to head back to our lives before the Christmas Holiday bears upon us full force, let us give thanks for all who care: our school children who have food drives, clothing drives, car washes to support causes; our community organizations that collect money, shoes and food; our faith communities that feed the hungry and clothe the shivering.
Thank you, Morgan Hill, for all that you do – not just on Thanksgiving, but every day of every year.
Whether it be your time, money or heart, thanks for giving and making this community a warm light in an often cold world.
