Customer service isn't a department, it's a way of life.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever." 1 Chronicles 16:34 NIV
Send a card to a serviceman thanks to Xerox (please do it!)
If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and send it to a service person who is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.
How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and only takes a minute.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if our service men and women received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers need to know we are behind them.
This takes just 1 minute and it's a wonderful way to say thank you. Please take the time, and then pass it on to others. We can never say thank you enough.
Just in time for Thanksgiving!
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
Your pies take the prize
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
Thanksgiving Day is a federal holiday in the United States.
Thanksgiving Day in the United States started as a way of giving thanks to God for food collected from a good harvest or problems that were fixed. It originated in 1621 and was a religious festival.
There are claims that the first Thanksgiving Day was held in the city of El Paso, Texas in 1598. Another early event was held in 1619 in the Virginia Colony. Many people trace the origins of the modern Thanksgiving Day to the harvest celebration that the Pilgrims held in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621. However, their first true thanksgiving was in 1623, when they gave thanks to God for rain that ended a drought. These early thanksgivings took the form of a special church service, rather than a feast, as is common now.
In the second half of the 1600s, thanksgivings after the harvest became more common and started to become annual events. However, it was celebrated on different days in different communities and in some places there were more than one thanksgiving each year. The celebrations often included prayer and fasting and so were quite different to the modern holiday. George Washington, the first president of the United States, proclaimed the first national Thanksgiving Day in 1789.
Since 1863, Thanksgiving Day has been an annual holiday in the United States. A more recent tradition started in 1947. Since then, the president has been presented with a live turkey, which he 'pardons'. The turkey then spends the rest of its life peacefully on a farm.
She is also famous for being the director of "The Twelfth Night Singers" a cappella voices in Renaissance atire. They perform mostly at private parties but will be making three public appearances this year, Sunday November 29, in Ferndale Saturday December 5, at Noel Night and Friday December 11 in West Bloomfield . The details are in the events section of this newsletter.

Hope to hear from you.
