Dear Citizens,

Linda and I would like to wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving. We encourage you to spend time with your families and enjoy the season of beauty and thankfulness.

In our home, we have a tradition during our meal on Thanksgiving day. We go around the table and each person lists one material blessing they are thankful for the past year. We are all truly aware that we are thankful for one another and we express that often during the year with birthdays and special occasions.

Thanksgiving, however, is a time when we want to share some of the many material blessings we have been given. It is very interesting, as we interact with one another and often comical to see, what each person has really enjoyed over the past months. We have had everything from a recliner, a cat, a certain book, a guitar, an older clothes dryer that still works, a toothbrush (electric) and even a simple "thank you" letter. Being thankful for what we have been given is worth sharing with one another.

We especially want to thank each of you for making us a part of your lives and for working to make Hampton the best city in Henry County.   

Mayor Hutchison and Linda.
