Celebrate Shoreline/Celebrate Your Neighbors: Nominate someone for recognition or make art to celebrate your community
Shoreline Has Gratitude
Who has made a difference to you and your family?
In March, everything changed for all of us. We were asked to stay close to home to keep ourselves and others safe from the COVID-19 virus. Some of us began telecommuting, others juggled work and homeschooling, many people lost their jobs or were unable to work, and still others were deemed essential workers and continued to go to their jobsites. While everyone has had to make sacrifices during these challenging times, some of your neighbors have stepped up to help keep our community together. They work in hospitals and grocery stores; deliver mail and packages; drive buses and pick up garbage. They are teachers who offer lessons online and neighbors who help each other.
Nominate someone for recognition
Do you have a neighbor or know someone who lives and/or works in Shoreline who has made a difference? Are you one of those people? Send us an email to tell us about their or your work. If you can, share contact information for the person/people you are nominating.
Throughout the month of August, we will post short profiles on our Facebook page. We want to celebrate our neighbors who make this city a caring place to live. Send your shout-outs to Constance Perenyi at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 21.
Sidewalk art appreciation
Throughout August, use sidewalk chalk to draw a colorful thank you message on your driveway or sidewalk. Make it big enough for people to see as they walk or drive by. Remember to be safe. Keep your distance from cars and stay at least six feet away from other people. Wash your hands well after you finish your drawing.
Please share your thank you messages on social media with the hashtag #iheartshoreline.
Celebrate Shoreline through art
Yard Sign Art
Even though we won’t get to enjoy our usual Celebrate Shoreline events throughout the City, residents can still celebrate our City’s anniversary. This year is a milestone –Shoreline became a city 25 years ago!
Decorate a celebratory yard sign to put in your yard or window, or add it to a parade of signs in the Park at Town Center along the Interurban Trail between August 9 and 17. The yard signs give you a starting point with the words CELEBRATE SHORELINE outlined at the top. You get to add your own creative touches. We’ve found that non-washable pens work well, but you can explore other ways to create your sign. Use your imagination as you celebrate your City! Please share pictures of your sign on social media with the hashtag #iheartshoreline.
