Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope that you are gearing up for a safe and healthy Thanksgiving week! Today’s shortened eNews will be the only eNews I send out this week, but we will be back next Monday to resume our regular eNews schedule for Mondays and Thursdays.

Even as we enjoy gathering with family which for many of us includes a traditional Thanksgiving meal, I encourage you also to recognize and remember the colonial roots of this holiday and combat the sanitized version that many of us were taught in school. To read more about the more accurate roots of Thanksgiving, these articles in The New York Times  and Smithsonian Magazine are good places to start.

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
