Washington, D.C. – On Monday, I spent time with some amazing children from the Clarksville area. The 1st and 2nd graders from Rossview Elementary invited me to read with them. We read the book called One Proud Penny and talked about how pennies are made. They were great readers and very curious about my job as a U.S. Congressman.

Later in the afternoon, I had lunch with Robyn Gordon, an inspirational 13-year-old who has written a children’s book called Stop Bullying. Robyn is a brave and courageous young woman who was bullied when she was 6.

Thanksgiving Message from Congressman Marsha Blackburn

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. Congress

Washington, D.C. – Fellow Americans –

We are sending our weekly Blackburn report to you a little early this week.  I am certain that you and your family are much like mine and will enjoy the time to gather, eat some of your favorite foods, laugh, reminisce, and recount adventures together and probably enjoy a little football.

One of my favorite Thanksgiving activities is to have my grandsons join me in the kitchen to create some of our favorite foods and they always want to make an interesting dessert. This year, they want it to have a Vols theme, so it sounds as if orange frosting might be in my future.
