Members of the City of Bowie Fire Department gathered with friends and family this week to celebrate Thanksgiving and present annual awards.
Riley Harvill, Bowie native and owner of The HarBeck Company, was the program speaker. The company focuses on leadership growth and development in all stages of the employee and leadership cycle. Harvill also works closely with police and fire departments on their wellness programs.
Harvill noted this holiday season is often difficult for many who may be alone, in poor health or facing other issues. It also can be difficult for first responders who see difficult things every day on the job.
He said on Thanksgiving Day we are very thankful, but the next day we tend to forget about being grateful. Harvill encouraged everyone to strive to be optimistic as it is associated with gratitude, adding problems are an opportunity to learn something because you often don’t learn from success.
