Thanksgiving, St. George, Utah

Thanksgiving in St. George, Utah is a big event and very busy time of year.  With so many folks who have retired in our beautiful town it brings the rest of the family to town to visit the grandparents.  The other reason St. George gets so busy is because of the softball/baseball tournaments that are held over the weekend. And we usually have great weather too.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us to all of you.  Please travel safe.  Below we have added several quotes regarding thanksgiving, gratitude and thankfulness.  May your holiday season be wonderful.
