Independents Get Inspired—and Educational—With the Thanksgiving Spirit

NEW YORK—By this time tomorrow, many of us will be camped out on a couch, stuffed to the brim with turkey and mashed potatoes, dreaming about pumpkin pie. But right now, people across the country are gearing up for Thanksgiving—and that includes ECPs, who are using Thanksgiving as inspiration for in-office decorations, special events and even educational moments. As you—hopefully—settle down for a long weekend and a whole lot of food, let’s take a little scroll through how the optical community is celebrating Thanksgiving this year. After all, is there any better way to get in the spirit?
