“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” ~Author Unknown
This Thanksgiving, we look forward to gathering our loved ones near, to celebrate, reflect and take stock of the blessings that make our lives complete.
Chillier weather is finally upon us, and when the weather outside gets frightful, consider seizing the opportunity to check out the opera. “Carmen” sends arrows through the hearts of everyone from newcomers to opera enthusiasts.
Hungry? Stop by Visalia’s Picnic Sandwich Shop, which has been a fixture on downtown Main Street since 1968. Treat yourself by taking home some of their fresh-baked treats. Or check out the School House Restaurant and Tavern, a former elementary school where they serve up classic American dishes with a twist.
Santa is polishing up his sleigh, and if you need an infusion of holiday spirit, you’ll be delighted by Old Town Clovis’ One Enchanted Evening. Follow the luminaries from shop to shop, visit with friendly shopkeepers and enjoy a free horse-drawn carriage ride.
Meanwhile, we’ve got a great excuse for you to set your razor aside for the next month — during “Movember,” men let their moustaches grow as an imaginative way to raise awareness (and funds) for men’s health issues.
We wish you a glorious Thanksgiving, from our family to yours.
