IN THE NEWS with Fastener News Desk the Week of November 21st, 2022

This week the nation celebrates the Thanksgiving Holiday. FND would like to take this opportunity to thank our followers, sponsors, and the fastener industry for their support over the past 10 years. Fastener News Desk is grateful for the opportunity to serve an industry that is close to our hearts and family roots. We’d like to offer this beautiful prayer to you and your families this Thanksgiving.

“For the laughter of the children, for my own life breath, for the abundance of food on this table, for the ones who prepared this sumptuous feast,

for the roof over our heads, the clothes on our backs, for our health, and our wealth of blessings, for this opportunity to celebrate with family and friends, for the freedom to pray these words without fear, in any language, in any faith, in this great country, whose landscape is as vast and beautiful as her inhabitants. Thank you, God, for giving us all these.” Happy Thanksgiving to All.
