Creative Celebration

January 06, 2012

Dear Students,

Thank you for your wonderful contributions to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. In our first year, we received outstanding poems, essays and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.

The submissions received are remarkable in what they represent – showing gratitude and respect for family, friends, our troops fighting overseas, and many other important people and activities. I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a challenging and thought-provoking question: “What are you thankful for?”

On behalf of the New York State Senate, I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to all of the participants in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.

All the best on the remaining school year,

Senator Alesi
