Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Monarch Family:

Just a quick note to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite meal of the year to prepare.  I have 35 pounds of turkey waiting to be roasted along with the usual side dishes and pumpkin and chocolate pies to be made. 

We all have many things to be thankful for, especially at LAVC where our own Monarch football team beat San Bernardino Valley College in the Golden State Bowl, 42-27, this past Saturday evening.  It was their first appearance in the championship game in 19 years.  Congratulations to first-year Head Coach Robert Tucker and his coaching staff and players for their victory.

And speaking of football, I would like to wish my Bruin friends good luck on Saturday.  May the best team win the game and claim the Pac-12 South title.  To my Trojan colleagues, Fight On!  I will be there to cheer our Men of Troy on!  Remember, what Larry Nakamura and I will be wearing at the Wonderful Winter Wonderland gathering on Thursday, December 10th from 11:30-1:00 depends upon who wins the game.

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday with family and friends.
