Even in these difficult times, with the pandemic, unemployment, and all the economic challenges, we still have a lot to be thankful for. First and foremost, I am thankful for a loving and supportive wife, daughter, circle of family and friends. I am thankful for a truly caring community; whose members work hard to do their part in maintaining our special village of Great Falls. I am thankful for all of the front liners, who bravely put themselves at risk to keep the rest of us safe, cared for and fed. I am thankful for the educators who are tirelessly and creatively finding ways to teach our children amidst enormous challenges. I am thankful for all the support community members have given to my business and community endeavors over the last 40 years and the staff and volunteers that I have had the privilege of working with. I am thankful for God keeping an eye on me and my family. He has thrown me a few curveballs over the last two years but has given me the privilege to stay in the game! I would like to finish with this: We have to remain strong, with a can-do attitude, like the little train engine pulling all the train cars up the mountain saying, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can,” until finally the train reaches the top with a sigh of relief. We may yet be in for a crazy ride down the other side of the mountain, but holding tight together, I know we can make it. It takes a village and that's what we have! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. – Mike Kearney of Great Falls
