Christmas message from Gov. Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon
JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon today released their 2014 Christmas message to the people of Missouri:
“As Missourians celebrate the holidays this year, it’s also a time to reflect on the gifts we’ve been given,” Gov. Nixon said.
“The spirit of Christmas has always been one of giving, and the people of Missouri demonstrate that spirit everyday by sharing their blessings with others,” Mrs. Nixon said.
“During this holiday season, Georganne and I want to encourage you to carry that spirit of giving throughout the whole year, and there are countless ways to do that,” the Governor said.
“Thank you to everyone who volunteers at a food bank, donates to those affected by disasters, or mentors a teen,” the First Lady said. “Your gifts of time and spirit add so much.”
“So from our family to yours, our best wishes for a safe and joyous Christmas season and for a 2015 that will be filled with peace,” Gov. Nixon concluded. “May God continue to bless our great state of Missouri.”
