Today is Thanksgiving — and everyone is hoped to have a joyous celebration throughout the day. One of those making that wish is Jasper State Senator Mark Messmer. Messmer reminds everyone of the first official declaration of Thanksgiving in America.
Messmer also reminds everyone to remember those who can’t be home for today’s holiday.
Even though Thanksgiving became official in the mid-19th century, the Thanksgiving tradition dates back to the Pilgrims in the fall of 1621.
