With Thanksgiving upon us and the holiday season near, I truly feel blessed to be Mayor of such a great city. Our work at City Hall is important, but the real strength of our community comes from its people.
Whether it is the Taylorsville-Bennion Heritage Center 10-year Anniversary, the re-grand opening of the Senior Center, a visit to the Taylorsville Food Pantry or a Taylorsville Exchange Club meeting—I am just amazed and thankful for the wonderful volunteers who work so hard to give back to this community.
We have active, diverse and caring citizens – residents who look out for one another and residents who take the time to get involved in their local government. Thank you all for everything you do to make this an outstanding community!
This holiday is 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.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I still remember growing up and seeing all the relatives and how much fun we all had playing games, telling stories, and especially all the home cooking of the Thanksgiving meal and desserts.
On behalf of the city, Happy Thanksgiving to all, and best wishes for a joyful and safe holiday!
