Why should Ennis be thankful?

It’s been a hard couple of years for our community, state and nation. Economic strife has been paired with national and international tension that has added weight to an already burdensome time to be alive.
But here in Ennis, life has been relatively static in the sense that the unique character of our town has been kept alive by the hard work of a number of well-intentioned community servants, both paid and volunteer.

The church community has knitted itself tightly together under the auspices of a series of goodwill campaigns unlike any we’ve seen before.

We’ve seen signs better economic times are around the corner as the city has managed to recruit its biggest industrial client to date in the form of Sysco Corp., and we hope to hear more about this fortuitous development soon.

Our school system continues to prepare and mold the young people in our community for the future with a high level of professional dedication and goal-oriented approaches of which we can be proud.

The state of Texas is among few states in our nation that can claim a sense of relative solid ground under its feet. Our neighbors and compatriots in the American nation have struggled far more than we, and as crass as it may be to say “better them than us,” we can’t help but think it. Our lives are better for it here.

We can be certain that the community we’ve built here and the sense of togetherness we’ve woven from the fabric of our cultures and varied heritage will persevere, and that is the biggest reason of all to feel blessed.
