It’s the time of year when holiday hopes are high and everyone seems to be able to find a reason to be thankful for something.

As the Thanksgiving holidays approach, residents of Pike County have a number of different plans for the holidays.

Some are looking forward to being able to see family and friends that may not be readily accessible, while others are looking forward to a day laden with food and funfare.

But while people may celebrate in different ways, almost everyone sees that there is something to be thankful about and to look forward to.

Mona Bassett of Troy said she would like to give thanks to God for letting her walk on this Earth. A lot of people forget to thank God for what they have. Bassett also plans to spend Thanksgiving with her children and she prays that she will be able to talk to her son who is in the Navy.

Gail Green of Troy said this Thanksgiving marks the last Thanksgiving of the 20th Century. "We like to have a family feast," she said. Green also hopes to spend time with family and give thanks for all they have.

Peggie Scott of Troy said she would thank God and enjoy spending time around family and loved ones. She hopes to have plenty of food. Scott hopes to have many more Thanksgivings and that God may bless everyone on Thanksgiving Day.

Barbara Ewell of Troy is very thankful for her family and friends and will eat a lot of food. She will also visit relatives and spend time with her son.

Pamela Floyd of Goshen said she is going to her grandmothers. She enjoys seeing all of her cousings, aunts and uncles, but especially likes the food.
