Transformations Furniture would like to wish you and your family a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!

We Give Thanks

Our Father in Heaven,
We give thanks for the pleasure
Of gathering together for this occasion.
We give thanks for this food
Prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life,
The freedom to enjoy it all
And all other blessings.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength
To carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ,
Our Heavenly Father.
—Harry JewellAs we celebrate, please keep in mind those who are less fortunate, and consider a contribution to the worthy organization of your choice. Transformations supports The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission which, with the help of over 250 volunteers, will serve almost 3000 meals to hungry folks in our city this Thanksgiving. Google The Rescue Mission in your city; they probably have a similar story, and can always use help.

Graphics with Stylized American Flag and text: Election Day!

If you haven’t heard by now, today is Election Day!

In 1792, the United States Congress set forth federal law that permitted states to conduct their Presidential Elections any time in a 34 day period before the first Wednesday in December. It wasn’t until 1845 that Congress instituted a uniform date for choosing Presidential Electors.

Here are some interesting facts about why Election Day is the day it is:

  November was selected because the harvest work was done.
  Tuesday was selected because many people had to travel the day before to reach the polling place.
  Since most people did not travel on Sunday for religious reasons, they did not want it to be on a Monday.
  They did not want Election Day to fall on November 1st because it is All Saints Day.
  They did not want Election Day to fall on the first of the month because many shop keepers did their books for the preceding month on the first.
