“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.”
~Author Unknown

This Thanksgiving, we look forward to gathering our loved ones near, to celebrate, reflect and take stock of the blessings that make our lives complete.

We’re forever indebted to the fine men and women who have served our country, and we’re grateful to be able to share some of their stories in honor of Veterans Day. Al Johnson, Virginia Potts and George Fredson, who live at the Veterans Home of California in Redding, were gracious enough to share some of their memories in this issue.

When the weather outside gets frightful, check out an indie, offbeat or foreign film at the Pageant Theatre in downtown Chico. The 99-seat theater recently underwent a significant upgrade, but it still maintains the intimate feel of a small art house theater.

Hungry? Stop by the inimitable Lulu’s Eating and Drinking Establishment – the go-to breakfast spot for country music legend Merle Haggard, and the hangout for regulars who find friends, family and fun there.

Santa is polishing up his sleigh, and if you need an infusion of holiday spirit, check out the Downtown Chico Christmas Preview. The streets of downtown Chico will come alive with businesses eager to show you what makes them special. Meanwhile, we continue our series of features on local downtowns with a place that we adore – downtown Redding, home of Enjoy Magazine.

Finally, we’ll share some of our best ideas for expressing our gratitude, during Thanksgiving and beyond. Your talent can help someone else, no matter what it is!

We wish you a glorious Thanksgiving, from our family to yours.
