Dear ASC Community,
If it were not for this terrible pandemic, today we would hold our annual ASC Thanksgiving Party for students, the staff, and the faculty alike. It would be a big-time event all organized by the ASC Student Council, with a hefty turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pies galore. We would hold the ASC Thanksgiving Potluck Cook-Off Contest. It has become our cherished tradition to spend this evening together at the Center. Alas, this is not to be this time. My hope is we will resume the custom of Thanksgiving next year, and we will make up for the lost time.
Yet for many of us this challenging year has also been quite fruitful and refreshing. We therefore have every reason to be thankful. It’s helped us see things anew. Before long, when the Rona is gone, we will all be ushering in a new era that may yet be very interesting. On this special occasion, I wish you all good health, happiness and every success, academic and otherwise!
