Hi, I'm Byran Barnett, mayor the city of Rochester Hills, and as always thanks for watching. You know as the seasons change, the leaves have fallen, and we move into a different season, we stop as a nation to think for just a few days about how grateful we are. All the things were thankful for, and your list I'm sure is probably just as long as mine. Thankful for family, for friends, for good health, maybe some, some recent successes that you or your family have enjoyed. But we have lists, don't we? And we're pretty grateful for that, and on my list, and I think on many of yours, is really being thankful for our community. I tell you as I crisscross this, this city almost on a daily basis, I run into people that are really, really frankly, we're blessed to have as part of our community. People that understand it's not just about living in Rochester Hills, but it's about giving in Rochester Hills. It's the reason our nonprofits thrive in some of the most challenging times of the year. It's the reason that our schools are ranked as high as they are in the states. It’s the reason we’re one of the safest communities anywhere in the Country. It’s the reason that each month more and more residents, businesses, restaurants desire to be a part of this community. We're truly very blessed. And I think that blessing is recognized not just by our residents here, but by folks across the state and across the nation. So as you gather around the Thanksgiving table this year and you think about all those things that you count as blessings, I hope that you'll add one to the list, and it's not the one you might be thinking about, the Lions being in first place which is truly something to be thankful for, but rather it’s living in a great community. A community where you're surrounded by residents that recognize the importance of giving back. I hope that maybe this time, this season, you and your family will find a chance to get involved and do the same. On behalf of the Barnett family we thank you for being great residents, we thank you for your interest and involvement in our city, and we wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving and a very blessed start to a holiday season. Thanks for watching.
