Celebrate your best Thanksgiving ever! Celebrate your best Thanksgiving ever!

Celebrate your best Thanksgiving ever!

24 Nov

Remember the Thanksgiving story you learned in school?

How way back when, Pilgrims and Indians got together at one giant dinner table and ate turkey and stuffing and green beans covered in Campbell's mushroom soup? And then there was peace on Earth?

Actually, it was the Wampanoag in 1621 who helped the first wave of Puritans arriving on our shores, showing them how to plant crops, forage for wild foods and basically survive.

Years later, President Washington first tried to start a holiday of Thanksgiving in 1789, but this has nothing to do with “Indians and settlers, instead it’s intended to be a public day of “thanksgiving and prayer.” 

It wasn’t until the writer Sarah Josepha Hale persuaded President Lincoln that the Thanksgiving holiday was needed and could help heal the divided nation that it was made official in 1863.

Thanksgiving feels harder today.

On its modern surface, it's about gratitude. What a year of pandemic, supply chain shortages, climate change and isolation! Finally, there’s an opportunity to get together with family and friends to share a meal and look toward the future. Today, at Case Medical, is not the usual potluck lunch which we’ve had for over two decades to celebrate together the Thanksgiving holiday. Instead, we’re having a cold brown bag lunch pre-packaged for each person and served in shifts. Togetherness is something we’ll have to postpone until 2022 or 2023 when hopefully we’ve reached herd immunity and the pandemic is behind us.

Meanwhile, we want to thank you for your service and tell you how much we missed seeing you in person at IAHCSMM, AORN, and MTORS this year, but how we try to bring a sense of togetherness with our weekly blog, our always available chat… “we do want to hear from you”, and our monthly educational webinars.

We’re in this together.

Here’s an opportunity to join us once again for an informative presentation which is also our way of giving thanks to those of you on the front line and for those of us supporting you with quality products that contribute to sustainability on this Thanksgiving and on Thanksgivings to come.
