Seneca Allegheny Casino Show 10/27-28/2012

Happy Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everyone a Happy healthy and blessed Thanksgiving.  I would like to ask everyone to take a little time to actually reflect on what you personally have to be thankful for.
For to many people today Thanksgiving is little more than an excuse to over eat and get ready for the

Christmas shopping season.  That is not what Thanksgiving is about, we (the country) need to get back to the true meaning of Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday season.

One of the many things I am thankful for is our troops fighting for our freedom.  Please say a prayer for them, especially the ones that are away from their family’s.
