Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts’ Thanksgiving Day Message

 

City of Clarksville

Clarksville, TN – Thanksgiving is a time to reflect, a time to be grateful for all that we have been given. My favorite Thanksgiving Day memories growing up involve doing yard work and raking leaves with my dad. I’m sure this was designed to get us outside and out of my mother’s hair while she prepared dinner.  We then pivoted to kitchen cleanup duty after the meal.
