A reason to be thankful

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

This month, several of my Facebook friends have been taking the time to make daily posts regarding the blessings in their lives. I think this is referred to as 30 days of Thanksgiving. My friends have listed family, friends, their jobs, their health, their faith and many other things on their daily posts. I am very thankful for all of these things as well, but I would like to add something to this list. I am thankful for those who continue to support the Cassville Democrat.

It is our Cassville Democrat readers who take the time to digest the information provided in our newspaper each week. They are also the ones who often attend the events and support the fundraisers and efforts we highlight in our publication. Our readers are dedicated to our community. Even though some of them may no longer live and work in our local area, they return for vacations and holidays because of their love for Cassville and Barry County.

Our advertisers trust us to showcase the products and services available in the local area. They also spend their hard-earned dollars to support sponsor pages that highlight events in our community and the accomplishments of student clubs and athletic teams. They also enable the Cassville Democrat to continue to provide readers with the media coverage they have come to depend on from our newspaper.

The Cassville Democrat staff is thankful for the support we have received from the local community over the last 142 years. We value each of our subscribers, advertisers and newspaper stand customers. Thank you for another successful year! May God bless each and everyone one of you this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season.
