A Month to Give Thanks

In: The Lonestar Weekly   Posted 11/30/2018

During the month of November, we often take time to reflect upon those things for which we are most appreciative—maybe those things easily taken for granted. Here are five of our favorite moments from November that capture what we’re thankful for:

1. Veterans—Sen. Cornyn, joined by Army veteran Spc. Nick Nelms, participates in Austin’s Veterans Day Parade to honor the men and women who have fought to protect our freedoms.

2. Law Enforcement—The Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Day Dinner serves more than 25,000 seniors and San Antonians in need. Sen. Cornyn joins members of the San Antonio Police Department in preparing the 2018 meal.

3. Community Organizations—At the H-E-B Feast of Sharing, Sen. Cornyn participates in serving over 14,000 Thanksgiving meals to the Austin community.

4. Farmers—Agriculture is vital to the Texas economy. Sen. Cornyn meets with a group of young Texas farmers to discuss the status of the Farm Bill.

5. Judicial System—Sen. Cornyn participates in a ceremony to rename the Laredo Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Laredo in honor of Judge George P. Kazen.
