TURNBULL, JAMES GIVE THANKS, EXTEND BEST WISHES

Gov. Charles W. Turnbull and Lt. Gov. Gerard Luz James II extended best wishes to Virgin Islanders in statements issued Wednesday, giving thanks in particular for a largely uneventful hurricane season now drawing to a close.
Said Turnbull, "Despite our grave economic problems, Virgin Islanders have much to be thankful for… Thanksgiving is a time for family, for caring and sharing. It is a time of renewal of relationships. It is a time for reaching out to the less fortunate, the disadvantaged, the elderly, the needy, the homeless, those with special needs and most especially to our children—our future."
James too sought to remind Virgin Islanders of those in need. He asked that families with leftovers take meals to the nearest shelter or share it with others.
"If your family has planned a large feast, invite friends or neighbors who you know may be alone or without a complete meal that day," he said.
