CELEBRATE THE BEAUTY OF OUR COMMUNITY WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS
SHARE PHOTOS OF GREENBURGH---a Greenburgh distraction initiative for those who have worried about Covid and now are worried about aWorld War III
I am guessing, if you’re feeling anything like I am, you are absolutely “sick and tired” of having spent the majority of your time indoors due to appropriate fears related to Covid infection, coupled with what seems to be an endless number of cold, dank, rainy/snowy, dark days. It's been a difficult two years. And, even after hearing some recent good news about the pandemic (being able to go indoors mask-less) we're getting anxious about the possibility of another World War. We need a distraction.
I was speaking recently with staff members and residents who were relating to the overall sense of malaise that so many of us are experiencing during these difficult times. A wonderful and brilliant suggestion was proposed. Together as a community, let’s celebrate the beauty of Greenburgh through photographs. In a world where everyone has a smartphone with a camera, I am sure there are thousands of beautiful photographs of new landscape designs at your home, interesting architecture, sunsets, birds, and animals in our parks and anything else that you may have captured in a photograph, which made you smile.
We all need a little break and what could be better than to be reminded just how beautiful our community is and just how much our neighbors and we have in common. I am looking forward to spending more time on my bicycle speaking with residents working in their gardens and getting to speak with them at their homes. I love making bike calls - asking residents what we can do at the town government level to make their lives better. And, will also share photos with the community.
To this end, we have created a special Greenburgh Shares photo album on our town website, which we hope to fill with around-town photos that make you smile. The photos will be posted here: https://www.greenburghny.com/gallery.aspx?PID=2116
I believe this project can go far in uplifting the spirits of our residents, by sharing beautiful moments in your lives, with your neighbors. Send your pictures, with the name of the photographer, and a short caption if you want to include one, to email@example.com and we will post them as they come.
Let’s all get involved and make this little experiment in sharing, something which brings a little Springtime into our lives when we need it most. It is especially fulfilling in difficult times to highlight special moments and utilize them, as a means to give us all security that good things portend for the future.
Be safe, healthy, happy and let’s keep taking care of each other. Greenburgh really does care!!!
