“Thanksgiving Day is a time to reflect and give thanks for family, friends and our communities. What better way to exemplify the “American Spirit”, than a parade to bring the community together. Also, let us open up our hearts and remember the less fortunate. I wish everyone a safe and joyous holiday,” says Congresswoman Wilson.
