What are you grateful for?
That’s the question you will find written in various locations throughout the City starting Monday, October 26. The City of Aberdeen has joined other cities across the state to participate in this pre-Thanksgiving campaign to promote gratitude. Local businesses, citizens and visitors, and City employees are encouraged to participate.
The project utilizes community hubs as “Gratitude Stops” to engage passersby by writing or drawing a message of gratitude on storefront windows or bulletin boards. Gratitude Stops in the City of Aberdeen include:
• Kaufman Scroggs, 101 E. Heron St.
• Catholic Community Services Family Preservation, 224 E. Wishkah St.
• Aberdeen City Hall, 200 E. Market St.
• Aberdeen Fire Station, 700 West Market St.
• Aberdeen Sewer Plant, 1205 W. State St.
• Aberdeen Water Shop, 1201 W. Heron Street
Take a moment to share what you are grateful for by writing a note, drawing a picture, or otherwise expressing your gratitude at one of the Gratitude Stops. The project runs from October 26 to December 4.
The Gratitude Graffiti Project is based on a simple concept, supported by studies showing that gratitude promotes optimism, positive thinking, satisfaction, enjoyment, self-worth, strong relationships, resilience and more. Practicing gratitude is good for you – and your family, friends, coworkers & community!
The project began in Maplewood, New Jersey, in 2012 in response to Hurricane Sandy and is inspiring communities all over the world.
