Gobble  Gobble... Just like family I am late with the invitation. I would like you to come to our Thanksgiving celebration today. We will have turkey, mashed potatoes & all the other trimmings. Best of all there will be pumpkin pie. I hope you will spend a little time with us & get a delicious meal at the same time. If we don't see you have a wonderful Fall Break with your families. Most of all be careful in all you do. Best Wishes from your Nutrition Staff.
