Much is written about the importance of this great holiday, so I will be brief.
Benjamin Franklin, the forefather of our Club, thought that the turkey should be the national emblem and not the eagle for reasons to long to repeat here. But whether you will be celebrating with friends and family at home today or with the American Club of Paris on Friday evening, the turkey, dressing and all that goes with it reminds us all of how much we have to be thankful for.
Aside from all the obvious things, I am grateful for the efforts that our volunteers and Committee Members put in to keeping our Club vibrant.
On behalf of the Club's Executive Committee, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.
