Holiday Message

Posted on November 17, 2023 at 11:36 AM by John Shelton

Dear Citizens:

It’s hard to believe that another year has almost passed, and that the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are upon us!  What a beautiful season this will be with all that our community has to offer.  It has truly been a spectacular year for Corsicana as we celebrated our 175th Anniversary.


The holiday season is a natural time for reflection.  It is a wonderful opportunity to gather with family and friends both old and new, remember those who have passed and celebrate our newest family members.   Family, friends, tradition, and the love and commitment we have for those we care about makes this season unique each year.  We should be thankful for all of these things every day of the year.


This season is also a time when we witness extraordinary acts of kindness and sharing throughout our community.  Over the years my family has lived here, I have seen dozens and dozens of examples of these acts in our city and county.  Giving back to extraordinary causes and assisting the less fortunate is a cornerstone of a healthy city and we certainly have more than our fair share of citizens who exhibit this every year.  Thank you!


I am thankful for this city and I am honored to be your Mayor.  I also want to express my gratitude to our City leaders, City employees, and volunteer board members who are the heart and soul of Corsicana and Navarro County.  I appreciate all of you for the essential services you provide each day to support our community.  As citizens, what can we do?  Attend church regularly, volunteer for causes close to our hearts, give to those less fortunate, and shop locally, just to name a few.


As the year comes to an end, we wish you and your families hope, love, and joy.  May God’s blessings and peace be upon you, your family, and your friends during this Thanksgiving and Christmas season, and may He grant you a prosperous and happy New Year!


God Bless You,




Mike and Deedy Fletcher
