A time for giving thanks

WTVP has much to be thankful for this year; a fact evidenced by the more than one hundred volunteers who gathered in our studio for our 29th annual Volunteer Recognition Reception. It was awe-inspiring to walk into a room of so many people dedicated to the mission of local public media, especially knowing that they represented only a fraction of the hundreds of volunteers who work so selflessly throughout the year. Thank you to all of you who help make WTVP the important community asset it is, in and for Central Illinois.

This is also the time of year we give extra thanks to our veterans and their families. As a former officer in the Navy, I am honored that PBS and WTVP showcase programming throughout the year that highlights stories of service and those who serve. This month we are pleased to add local specials to PBS' national offerings, including an At Issue on treating military trauma and an encore of The Greatest Honor, the Emmy-nominated film by Kane Farabaugh about John Amm, a WWII veteran from Pontiac.

Our thanks also go out to you, our loyal and active members. Your continued support of WTVP makes an enormous contribution to the quality of life in Central Illinois. I look forward to thanking you in person at the many events we have planned throughout the season. And on behalf of everyone at WTVP, I wish you and yours a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
