Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!  I am very grateful for so many things, certainly including the wonderful Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Andover.

This year, as in many years in the past, I have "adopted" (sponsored) a turkey at the Farm Sanctuary.  It's part of my own Thanksgiving tradition.  I myself am a vegetarian, but you can adopt a turkey whether you're a vegetarian or not!

I adopted Antoinette this year: "Let them eat squash!"
