The saying goes “It takes a village to raise a child” – which I would amend to, “It takes a community to have a community.” 

This was true the past few weeks as businesses, individuals and organizations coming together to make our community shine.

The Community Thanksgiving Dinner was awesome with volunteers and the Nyssa Senior Citizens Center coming together for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and the opportunity to visit with folks not seen in a while. Thank you to Mary Shelton, the dinner crew and the Nyssa . . .
