Thanksgiving After Dinner Speech

November 26, 2013


This time of year is all about taking note of everything, big or small, that make a positive difference in our daily lives. (Of course, it’s also all about feasting on sweet and savory treats, ogling at the pretty lights in your neighborhood, and playing a heated game of Scrabble with your family.). What truly glows in each of us during the Thanksgiving Holiday is a sense of gratitude for what we have, and in many cases, what we have is the result of what others have given.

This Thanksgiving, we at Oregon State Parks are grateful for the service our volunteers have given us. These individuals are the face of our conservation efforts, the brains informing our interpretive programs, the keepers of our trails, and the reason our visitors have a tidy campsite to inhabit and a cozy fire to sit by.

So, we raise our glasses to all the Oregon State Parks volunteers – past and present – that have brought their skills, dedication, smiles, and park love to work with them every day. We could not operate such a robust network of special places without you!
