As a provider of news for the lakeshore we know all too well how much positivity is overshadowed by negativity. Negative thoughts and actions are far too easy to find. It’s the positive things that happen in our community that we really have to dig for. We value all the people on the lakeshore that contribute to making this a great place to live! “Community Kindness” is a place where you can recognize those in the community that are spreading positivity and kindness. Spread the word! Good news and good people are out there. No matter how big or small! We want to hear about it. Whether it’s a neighbor mowing your lawn, a group or individual working to make our town the best it can be, or just a stranger who took the time to talk with you one morning in the coffee line. Share the kindness that happens everyday!

I was recently at a local festival and it was very hot – in the 90’s. A stranger bought my sister and I bottles of water. Such a nice random gesture and it meant a lot.
I was walking out of Aldi and saw a young lady walk over to an elderly couple and offer to help them put their groceries in their car. She also returned the cart for them and even the quarter! Great to see strangers helping make people’s lives a little easier!

I would like to acknowledge my neighbors, Wayne and Mary Sue Theilen. Throughout the years of snow storms, autumn leaves and summer grass and weeds I find it hard to keep up with, they surprise me all the time with plowed snow, mowed grass, edging and raked leaves. They are my angels that look out for everyday!
