    From The CEO’s Desk

    I have such fond memories of the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays as a child. Waking up to smell the turkey roasting and the dressing cooking. Seeing more food on the table than could possibly be eaten in a week. Being surrounded by friends and family who loved and cared for me. Waiting anxiously to open the gifts that might have been left for me under the Christmas tree.
