Word for the Herd

2016-11 Thank you

In the United States, November is the month when we have Thanksgiving. It’s the holiday in which we remember those we are thankful for. This year, Kathy and I are thankful for the Nomad PHP Community. Compared to other communities, we are small, but we are growing. It is a matter of some pride for us that many of you who are subscribers have been with us for multiple years. To us, that is a sign that we are creating something that is useful to you.

Whether your involvement in the community is that you are a subscriber, you are a sometimes attender, or you are a mailing list member, we are thankful for you. We hope that you will be with us for many more years to come. Thank you. 🙂
