The Thankful Project
This year has been challenging in every aspect of our daily lives. As 2020 comes to a close, we would like to acknowledge the positive and record the things that our community is thankful for. Leave us your note of gratitude in person, by phone or social media and we will be sure add your sentiment on our community pumpkin. Our goal is to fill a pumpkin with the big and little things that we are all thankful this season of gratitude.
