Remembering the five fallen officers that lost their lives five years ago today. Truly grateful to these public servants and all others that have made the ultimate sacrifice while working to keep us safe. Let's all pause a moment today in their honor. Thanks-Giving Chapel will stay open until 9pm tonight to welcome those that want to pay their respects by adding a note of gratitude to our gratitude wall.

We have completed the pressure washing and exterior restoration of the beautiful one-of-a-kind Philip Johnson designed interfaith chapel at Thanks-Giving Square. The process could be thought of as a metaphorical "re-boot" to a new Thanks-Giving Square version 2.0. More on that later, but for now, consider this...maybe an introspective and contemplative visit to The Square could help you find a new you?!?!? #thanksgivingsquare #chooselove #makeadifference #practicegratitude

Billy Michaelis, who worked on installing the mosaic tile "Thanksgiving Square" signs sadly passed away today.
Is the meditation series on the 3rd Tuesday over? Walked down this evening & the chapel was closed. ☹️

I visited Thanksgiving Square in 1996 while attending the North American Interfaith Network (NAIN) meeting in Dallas. Elizabeth Espersen chaired that meeting, and four years later I became the Chair of NAIN myself. I wanted to contact her about the 30th anniversary of NAIN but my email was returned immediately. Would you have a current email address for her? I would greatly appreciate it if you could send it to me. Thank you very much. Don Mayne - [email protected]
