APPRO & CERRON: A Time to Count Blessings

A Time to Count Blessings – At Thanksgiving and Every Day

With Thanksgiving just one week away, it’s that time of year when we count blessings (the many blessings!) in our lives. You and I may have some of the same items on our “list of things to be thankful”: family, friends, jobs, pets, travel, food on our tables and a warm place to sleep – but let me offer a few new ideas.

This Thanksgiving…

  • Be thankful for the people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference.
  • Be thankful for the opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves.
  • Be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
  • Be thankful that we live in a country packed with freedoms and opportunities so many only dream of.
  • Be thankful for the hard times, the mistakes and the pain, for they make us stronger and smarter.
  • Be thankful for the unique privilege of being YOU!
  • Be thankful that every single day is a fresh, new start.
  • Be thankful for the joy of laughter.

A Little Thanksgiving Trivia

The pilgrim leader, Governor William Bradford, had organized the first Thanksgiving feast in 1621. He invited the neighboring Wampanoag Indians to the feast and thanksgiving. The celebration lasted for three days. Lobster, rabbit, chicken, fish, squashes, beans, chestnuts, hickory nuts, onions, leeks, dried fruits, maple syrup, radishes, cabbage, carrots, eggs and goat cheese are thought to have made up the first Thanksgiving feast.

Lakeville-based APPRO Development and CERRON Commercial Properties wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and remind you to be thankful for all the blessings in your lives!


Happy Thanksgiving from APPRO and CERRON

This season we are thankful for so much! At APPRO and CERRON, this Thanksgiving, we are grateful for our long time friends and colleagues in the Airlake Industrial Park, Lakeville, and the South Metro region of Minnesota, as well as our friends in Tioga, Williston, and Minot, North Dakota, who have helped contribute to our success over the past 25 years.

As I think about the early pilgrims, I think about the celebration of hard working people who came together to share their blessings with one another. They were a team that worked hard to build a new life and then celebrated their triumph over some pretty tough times.

Every day, our team has an opportunity to help our clients serve others. Whether they are making medical instruments to save lives, durable plastics for products to make life easier, providing nourishing food for our nation and the world, or providing the packaging for those products , we are grateful for our role of providing the building solutions to meet each of those unique needs.

As you sit down and celebrate your Thanksgiving meal with friends and family, we hope you will know that we are grateful for you and the role you have played over the years!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at APPRO and CERRON!
