Watch: The community shares its thoughts on Cayman Thanksgiving

Those of us lucky to call Cayman home have so much to be thankful for. Loop Cayman took to the streets to ask the community, “What does Cayman mean to you?” 

Some things that Caymanians are thankful for include making it through another hurricane season safely, having a thriving and growing economy, and our safe and kind culture.

Here are some quotable quotes:
