With the Thanksgiving holiday this week and Christmas just around the corner, this is the time of the year to be both thankful for what we have, be appreciative of family and friends, and be mindful of others. I have always been inspired by the generosity of the Webster community to those less fortunate. This spirit of one neighbor helping another is just one part of what makes Webster such a great community.
I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to the many volunteers throughout Webster who have given of themselves by donating their time, effort, and in some cases financial assistance. This is what the spirit of the holidays is truly about; helping those who truly need help. It would be impossible to list every person and organization, so to all of them please accept not only my sincere appreciation but also the appreciation of the entire Town Board.
In this season of being thankful, allow me to personally thank some very special people.
To my wife Karen, our children and grandchildren; thank you for your constant love, support and putting up with me and my long work hours. My family means everything to me, and you have always been there for me, for which I am so very grateful.
To the men and women that I call my department heads, I extend a huge note of thanks for their dedication and hard work. To the Town Board, Bill Abbott, Patti Cataldi, Barry Deane and Alecia Mazzo; my thanks to you for the continued support to help make the town of Webster the place, “where life is worth living!” To all the employees here at the town; thank you for your hard work on behalf of the residents. Without these individuals, I would not be able to govern the town of Webster and provide the services in which we have come to depend upon.
Just a reminder that Webster Town Hall will be closed Thursday, Nov. 22 and Friday, Nov. 23 to allow our employees to spend time with their family and friends for this Thanksgiving holiday.
On behalf of all the employees of the town of Webster, I wish you and yours a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
