CReal g state " Prol r CManagement Matthew Pitman, broker, SRES - 1459 Hollow Gien Rd - CA BRE 1721750 "Have A Hike ine with a Turkey" .J by Bill Fink Thanksgiving is One of my favorite holidays. It is as American as a Julian apple pie, though days of thanksgiving are celebrated at different times all over the world. Our holiday can be roughly traced to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621. Ourearly Pilgrims had a rough go of it in New England but with the help of the Natives and a bountiful crop, legend has it they celebrated in prayers and thanksgiving and a pretty good feed. Pretty soon it caught on and became a regular feature of the post American harvest season. One hundred and sixty eight years later in November 1789, President Washington proclaimed a day of thanksgiving for the entire nation. It was to be "a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God". For some, our national day of Thanksgiving is still a religious holiday while for others it is a day for family and friends to come together for great times, food and drink. In my, his, hers, theirs and ours family made up of all kinds of ethnicities and religions, its nice to know that the only requirement for us is that we are family. Thanksgiving binds us each year much as it does for all Americans. For my family, the kids and nephews are having kids of their own and all of a sudden we have four generations gracing our table. Now rm not sure when turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, yams, gravy, cranberry sauce, peas with pimentos, green bean casserole and rolls slathered in butter became part of the tradition. But I give personal thanksgiving that whipped cream (schlag to the Germans in the clan) became part of the tradition as topping for pumpkin pie and the myriad of other traditional desserts. I am so grateful for whipped cream that prior to my "slim" days, I would clasp my hands together, smack my lips arid lift my eyes to the heavens as I would fill my dessert plate with that delightful airy cream without the pie beneath it. So whatever .your faith, or however you celebrate the day, be thankful for your blessings and share them if you can. Create your own traditions and watch as your family grows and becomes part of your traditions and how they add their own little twists. Think of those that are no longer with you and those that are not as fortunate as you. In that light rll pass along a touching little story from my buddy Jimmie back in Jersey. Jimmy works for the Post Office and is in charge of processing the letters that come in with illegible addresses and the undeliverable ones like those addressed to Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Great Pumpkin. One day, a letter came in with shaky handwriting to God, with no address, just God. In the top left hand corner was the name Edna, just Edna and her return address. The temptation was too great and Jimmie couldn't resist opening the letter to see what it was all about. The letter read: Dear God, I am an 83-year-old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday I was mugged and my purse was stolen. I was knocked to the ground and bruised. I'm a little sore and black and blue but I'll be OK. But my purse had a $100 in it that I had scrimped and saved from my small pension so I could invite my only two dear friends for Thanksgiving dinner. This is all the money I had until I receive my pension at the end of the month. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with, I have no family to turn to, and my dear friends are as old as I am and are in similar financial straits. You are my only hope Can you please help me? Sincerely, Edna My old friend Jimmy was toucfied. He showed the letter to all his postal co-workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which he put into an envelope and sent anonymously to Edna. The rest of the day, Jimmy and all the postal workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends. Thanksgiving came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the same old lady addressed to God. Jimmy gathered everyone around and opened the letter. It read: Dear God, How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your gift of love, I. was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it might have been those bastards at the post office!!! Sincerely, Edna Anyway, a selfless, generous act of kindness with a little humor thrown in. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Ladies of the Legion Auxiliary are making a trip to the VA Hospital in early December. They will be bringing jackets, coats, sleeping bags and blankets for those Vets in need. If you can help with clean items in good condition, just drop them off at the Legion. Your gift to those that gave will be deeply appreciated. More later. And, the Warrior Foundation annual radiothon on KFMB, 760 on your radio dial and channel 8 on TV is on Friday, December 5th from dark thirty till noon. I have worked the phones for this event in the past and will again this year. Our pie makers have donated graciously as well and Julianites have called in great numbers pledging funds. I know this because the other folks on the phones keep turning to me and saying that the caller said to tell "Big Mouth" that they pledged. More on call in number and more info later as well. Julian Chamber Of Commerce Board Election Results For 2015-2016 The election of board members for the Julian Chamber of Commerce was held this month. Ballots were mailed to all of the members of the Julian Chamber with a return envelope enclosed.

One hundred forty-five ballots were turned in. One third of the membership was needed for the election to be "valid.
