I am proud and inspired to be part of the caring community that is the CT-76th House District. In this time of Covid-19 crisis, the members of our district have stepped up to support each other in creative ways, big and small.
On our local social media pages, I have seen calls to action by citizens in our district answered with generous offers of help. There are folks organizing washable mask sewing efforts for CT Healthcare workers. Offers to run errands for those who are housebound or quarantined. Neighbors helping neighbors.
Here are a couple of examples from our towns:
In Thomaston, Teachers from Black Rock Elementary decorated their cars and drove in a parade past student’s houses to show their support for the children now learning from home. Here is a link to an article to the FOX61 coverage of the event.
In Burlington and Harwinton, a local “Cash Mob’ was organized to infuse small local businesses with customer support.
The Keep The Lights On Cash Mob is proving to be a huge success for the community. Let’s keep it going! The small businesses in our town need our support even more as the quarantine continues.
There are too many other examples of support and generosity for me to list here but please know that we see you and appreciate your efforts. We will get through this together.
Paul Honig is a candidate for Connecticut’s 76th State House District. He currently serves on the Board of Selectman in Harwinton.
See the flyer below for the Mob schedule. And be sure to post on social media about your participation. If you’d like to have your business added to the Mob, or if you have any questions, contact Mary Rivard at (860) 459-5108 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
