Thanksgiving Day offers each of us the opportunity to reflect on our lives and upon all that for which we are grateful. It is a day unique in its simplicity of purpose and joyous spirit; no wonder it is one of our nation’s most beloved holidays. In 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln declared the first national Thanksgiving Day, recognizing that even in the darkest times we are blessed.
This Thanksgiving, it is especially appropriate to remember the words of President John F Kennedy: “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
From all of us at Regents Bank, thank you. We are grateful for your allowing us to be a part of your lives, and wish you, your families and friends a very happy Thanksgiving.
