"On this Thanksgiving, I feel truly blessed to be Mayor of a great City with a bright future. What we do at City Hall is important, but the real strength of a community comes from its people. We have active, diverse and caring residents who look out for their neighbors and friends when they are in need. Thank you for all you do to make this an outstanding community.
"At this time of the year our thoughts are also with those who can't join us at the holiday feast, especially those in the military. We give thanks for their dedication and patriotism and for the service of our many veterans.
"This holiday in an opportunity to reflect on the many things in life that we often take for granted. As you gather with family and friends, I hope you will remember to give thanks simply for the opportunity to be together again. Happy Thanksgiving to all from the Beutler family, and best wishes for a joyful holiday season."
