We continue to hold this National day of Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November every year. It has become more than a day of fond memories, parades, football -(except for us Bear Fans).

We spend a few moments before actually eating stuff to give thanks for the richness of our lives and for our wonderful family and friends.

The Steering Wheel

I am sitting here starting to think about the next huge holiday celebration. No, it is not the Windy City BMW Annual Dinner and Awards Presentation on Saturday January 14th 2017 at The Signature Events Center in Wood ridge, Illinois, but is the annual Turkey and Fixens event that we call Thanksgiving. It was first celebrated in 1621 (no I wasn’t there) when the Pilgrims and the local Wampanoag Indians shared the Fall harvest. We continue to hold this National day of Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November every year.

It has become more than a day of fond memories, parades, football - (except for us Bear Fans). It is a day that we are hopefully reminded of the bounty of treasures that are part of our lives. We spend a few moments before actually eating stuff to give thanks for the richness of our lives and for our wonderful family and friends. At our table we also send out a special thanks to the men and women in our armed forces wherever they may be. They really need that in my view.

I would ask you this Thanksgiving Day to take a moment at your table to reflect on what actions you may take in the next year to fully express the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Lets make this year a memorable one.
