Editor's Note 

November 2018 

AS WE GATHER with loved ones, we’re reflecting on the simple things for which we are grateful – a sprinkle of rain, comfort food at our favorite restaurant, stealing a few moments to catch up with a friend over coffee. What makes your heart happy?

Friends are the family we choose for ourselves, and if you’re planning to host a Friendsgiving celebration, we have some tips to share. It’s a beautiful way to create a new tradition.

It’s the season of gratitude, and we’re honored to introduce you to some hometown heroes who are making indelible imprints on our community. Their stories will inspire you. 

It’s also the month we pay tribute to our veterans, and the Tulare County Museum makes it easy. Their interactive exhibit celebrates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, and it’s well worth carving out time for a visit. 

This month’s Editors Picks center on the city of Fresno – and since there’s so much to do and see, we’ve divided it into three distinct areas. Explore them all, or do it one at a time – there’s plenty to entertain you there. And if you’re a Broadway fan, the Saroyan Theatre is staging its 25th Broadway in Fresno season, which runs from now through April. Season tickets make a lovely gift… 

Wherever you gather for Thanksgiving, we wish you a celebration rich with delicious food, unconditional love and memorable moments. We are grateful for you. Enjoy!
