FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 24, 2009
Thanksgiving Day ushers the start of another holiday season, yet our still struggling economy signals that we must reach deeper into our pockets and hearts to make others' lives a little brighter.
What greater joy can we derive than to know a family sat down to partake of a surprise feast.
Also on our minds should be those brave men and women who will not be home with their loved ones this holiday while they serve their country. They and their predecessors are the ones we owe for preserving our right to celebrate our holy days and holidays in peace.
At this time of giving and caring, I encourage more volunteerism in Senate District 27.
I thank all those who generously contributed time and resources to my annual Eddie Lucio Texas Legends Golf Classic Scholarship Tournament that featured Dr. William Cunningham, former U.T. Chancellor, this year. Since 2001, we have awarded 392 scholarships to high school graduates.
During this special time of the year, my family and I wish the people of South Texas blessed and healthy holidays!
