Editorial: Are you thankful? Then say it in the paper
Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 2:24pm
It’s November; and, for us that means our thoughts have turned to Thanksgiving. At this time of year, we ask our readers to share with us why you are thankful.
First of all, we are thankful for you, our readers. We take pride in our role providing information that is important to people in our community. It may be about the success you or someone you know has had. It may be about someone rarely recognized who deserves our appreciation. It may be about any number of things, whatever is going on in our community.
We’re thankful for our advertisers and the trust you place in us to share your business mission with your customers and potential customers. We want your business to flourish; and, we are honored to assist you in promoting your business.
Second, we are thankful for each other. We have a good team here and work well together. We truly care about each other. We’re family.
We want you to share with us the reasons you are thankful. You may be thankful for your family, your health and your friends. Maybe you’re thankful to live in America. Maybe you’re thankful for your teachers. Whatever it is, share it with us.
We have been asking our readers to write thankful letters to us; and, we in turn publish the ones we can. We have received hundreds and hundreds of letters over the years. We read each one.
Your letter can be as long or as short as you need it to be to tell us your thankful stories.
Drop off your thankful letter at our office at 615 Mulberry St., Louisville; mail it to us at The News and Farmer, PO Box 487, Louisville, 30434; or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. In order to get the letters of thanks typeset, arranged and in your homes for the holidays we are asking that they be submitted as early as possible. and no later than Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Thank you again for sharing your stories with us, for allowing us into your home every week and for supporting the local journalists who remain dedicated to inform, unite, support and promote the residents of Jefferson and Glascock counties.
