Manager’s Message — November 2020

Honor and Reflection

Annie TerraccianoNovember provides us with two significant opportunities to reflect: Thanksgiving and Veterans Day.

On Thanksgiving Day, November 26, many of us will pause and give thanks. While COVID-19 may prevent many from indulging in their usual large-family activities, we can still take time to enjoy food and fellowship with those closest to us. Thanksgiving provides an opportunity to pause and reflect on what we have to be grateful for, knowing there are those who are not as fortunate.

Another opportunity each year to reflect and give thanks is Veterans Day on November 11. Our country would not have the freedom it does today without the sacrifice of our veterans. I would like to say thank you to each member who has given their time to serve and sacrifice for our country. At Northern Lights, we appreciate your patriotism, love of our country, and the sacrifice you made—or make—for the common good.

We also appreciate the sacrifice of each family with a loved one who has served, or is serving, in our armed forces.

We know many will celebrate both of these holidays while service members are away.

I am proud of our Northern Lights family who have provided service to our country. I want to thank our Northern Lights directors David Pemberton and Jill Vandegrift for their service.

In closing, while you take the time to think about the things you are thankful for, I want to thank you, our members, who support public power.

Enjoy the Thanksgiving season!
