What are you Giving Thanks for This year?
It’s probably more than likely that you’ve consumed something pumpkin-spiced, raked some leaves or maybe even shoveled snow. Thanksgiving is near and children are excited for Rudolph’s nose to glow. But before Santa Claus is on his way, we must remember to give thanks today.
At Thanksgiving, many people take the time to look back on the year and express gratitude for all the good things in their life and we are no exception. This year has been a great year for ALON, thanks to so many of you!
