I want to wish each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I am extremely grateful to have this opportunity to work in such a wonderful place, and I am very appreciative of the warm welcome that has been extended to me and my family. From the welcome brunch you hosted in September to the jar of Dewees Island honey I received yesterday, you have truly made me feel like part of this special Dewees family.
The word “Thanksgiving” often evokes warm images of family, gathering with friends, watching football, and enjoying far too much turkey and pumpkin pie. For each family, this holiday holds a slightly different tradition, and whether you are enjoying fish or fowl, I hope this day is filled with joy and happiness for each of you.
This week, our ferry crew has been busy loading many carts filled with holiday provisions, and there is no doubt there will be a number of bountiful feasts taking place here on Dewees Island. Many owners and guests have already gathered here to celebrate today, and I know that many others are traveling to Dewees over the weekend. Our ferry will continue to operate on its normal schedule throughout the weekend, and our Public Safety staff is always on standby should you need them for any reason.
On behalf of the staff, I want to thank each one of you for making this island such a unique and special place to be. We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
