What are you thankful for this year? Here’s what a few of our readers have to say:

“The beautiful sparkly lights in Munn Park.” — Reader Wendy F.

“I am thankful for where I live: The Lake Morton district. Every morning during my walk, I’m grateful for the beauty of our community. It has done wonders for my mental and physical health. I never really practiced gratitude until I moved to Lake Morton. The fact I have something so unique a few steps from my home is a beautiful thing.” — Reader Hali T.

“Being able to contribute back to my community this year. Mary’s Bagel Café summer lunch program feeding over 600 kids summer lunches and feeding 25-30 families this Thanksgiving from the donations from our tip jar.” — Mary’s Bagel Café

“I am thankful for the LAL. I can get all my local info and more, thanks!” — Reader Alison T.
