Here in D7390 we gathered around the Thanksgiving table to give thanks for all of our blessings --  including the ability to live in this beautiful, safe section of our country. Hurricanes, major flooding, forest fires do not haunt us; we are surely blessed. And now we move on to the Christmas season, unscathed by concerns about where to live and how to rebuild. Can we share some of our good fortune with fellow countrymen not so fortunate? Make your donation today.
