Letter: Thanksgiving begins at home

To the Editors:

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate family. It’s filled with gatherings and family favorites like crispy fried onion green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, oven roasted turkey with all the trimmings, pumpkin pie and of course, football! We enjoy family traditions handed down from one generation to the next but also celebrate the gift of giving that begins at home.

As you enjoy Thanksgiving traditions in your homes, giving thanks with your family, we thank all of you who have given your time and resources to help Stay at Home in Wilton seniors stay in theirs.
