Editor’s pick: Let’s go around the virtual table and all say what we’re grateful for about the Circle City. I’ll start. I’m always grateful for the tight-knit community Indy has to offer. Although we have over 882,000 Hoosiers in the city, it still feels like a small town where there are plenty of resources at your fingertips. I love to see the collaborations between businesses and the many welcoming events Naptown has to offer. Now it’s your turn.
