October is the time of year when we set aside time to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday and often the time when family members make the trip back home and when we gather with loved ones for a traditional meal and fellowship. At UFA, while we hope our gratitude comes through all year, the occasion of Thanksgiving gives us a special opportunity to thank all our members and customers directly. We extend our sincere appreciation to you, our loyal members, who have been a very supportive family through the changing face of our co-operative. We say thank you to our farmers and ranchers who provide the high quality food that is the cornerstone of holiday celebrations worldwide. You have many choices for where you do business and as we celebrate this month of Thanksgiving, we would like you to know how grateful we are that you place your trust in us. We wish you a very happy and safe Thanksgiving.
