Town Council President Josh South

Let us all take a moment during this Thanksgiving season and reflect on the blessings in our lives.

Vevay has endured adversities over this past year. Questions regarding the status of riverboat funding, loss of businesses within the community, concerns over an aging water plant; many have stated that Vevay is slowing dying.

Many of us have lost loved ones or faced personal anguishes, and yet, I believe we are all truly blessed.

Blessed to live in a country that makes us unique to any other county in the world, free to express our opinion and worship as we please. We should all pause this holiday season to give thanks and remembrance to those brave souls who risk their lives every day to guarantee that our lives are lived as free people, something that is often taken for granted.

Furthermore, we are truly blessed to live in the Town of Vevay, Indiana.

We have great town employees that have demonstrated their dedication to their community and the people that live within it. Our schools continue to make every effort to educate our children above and beyond expectations.

Our community cares.

When an individual in Vevay is hurting or in need, the community as a whole pulls together and provides. We grieve with our friends and neighbors over their losses and problems and celebrate achievements and happiness alike.

Personally, I have more to be thankful for than words can express.

I am surrounded by family and true friendships, even during contentious disagreements we can still get together to have a good time. I am thankful to have a great job that not only provides for my family financially, but fulfills my need for challenge on a daily basis. I am thankful to have a wife that gives me the ability to serve in leadership positions throughout our community, pulling more than her share of the weight at home.

I am thankful for my children who give me the strength to succeed at any task, big or small. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to move back to my home town to allow my children to grow up where I did, something it took many years for me to realize.

It is only when we begin to reflect, do we fathom just how blessed we truly are to live in Vevay, Indiana.

Happy Thanksgiving.

- Josh South,

President, Vevay Town Council
