As her letter in today’s Gazette describes, Michelle Hacker went to the Rock County 4-H Fairgrounds in Janesville on Saturday to pick up Thanksgiving fixings offered through ECHO, or Everyone Cooperating to Help Others. This single, disabled mother saw a long line and suggested to her daughter that perhaps she should have taken along her walker. Instead, she got her food quickly because the line was actually the hundreds of volunteers.

“We feel truly blessed to know that so many in our community care,” Hacker wrote in her letter.

Most residents in Janesville and around southern Wisconsin will find much to be thankful for when they gather Thursday with friends and families to celebrate Thanksgiving.

For what are you most thankful?

We’ll reflect on life in our slice of southern Wisconsin and share our Thanksgiving thoughts in our editorial Wednesday.
