[ARCHIVED] Daisy Troop 575 Decorates Kindness Rocks for Essential Workers

Kindness Rocks

As part of the ongoing #SmithtownStrong initiative, Daisy Troop 575 of St. James decorated and delivered kindness rocks in appreciation and support for essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Troop visited Smithtown Town Hall on June 30th to add their handmade kindness rocks to the display in front of the building. 

“It’s really a great feeling, watching so many people stop to read the signs or look at the beautiful artwork which has been hand painted by so many from the community. But when our children get involved, it gives us the much needed hope and faith that we will prevail through these uncertain times.” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim

Towards the end of March of this year, residents young and old began painting signs and other displays of gratitude for those individuals who have been of service to the community during the coronavirus pandemic. The town administration has invited the community to share these gestures of appreciation by exhibiting them throughout the landscape surrounding the building.

“The Town of Smithtown Youth Bureau and I are so impressed and pleased by the continual outpouring of community positivity. Throughout these stressful and confusing times, students and families never cease to amaze us with their good will and compassion for their fellow Town residents. Each and every kind gesture fills us with pride, and provides reassurance in the resilience of our Township’s students and families.” - Stacey Sanders, Youth Bureau Director 

Residents are encouraged to email Stacey Sanders at ssanders@smithtownny.gov for more information on any local initiatives, or to share other examples to which they have helped out the community during the coronavirus pandemic.
