April 20 – May 9 is designated as a time of caring in the City of Montgomery. Say thank you to all of Montgomery’s health care professionals and front-line workers by turning Montgomery blue!
Healthcare workers, restaurants, and grocery stores have remained open to ensure our health and safety during this pandemic. We are urging all Montgomery residents and business owners to join us in saying “thank you” by helping #TurnMontgomeryBlue. Take a picture of your project and post it on social media with the hashtag #TurnMontgomeryBlue.
Here are some ideas:
- Decorate mailboxes, front doors or trees with blue balloons and/or blue streamers.
- Create signs/posters and to thank all essential workers and hang outside in your yard.
- Place blue lights in a window or outdoors on trees and shrubs.
- Chalk Your Walk – Draw and write encouraging messages on your driveway or sidewalk with chalk thanking neighbors and community members in the healthcare or essential fields.
- Create a virtual hug – Thank your healthcare providers and all essential workers with heartfelt messages on social media pages for Kroger, Bethesda or other healthcare facilities in Montgomery.
- You Rock! – Paint thank you messages on rocks and leave them near your mailbox so walkers can see and feel appreciated.
- Write a “thank you poem” and post on social media with the hashtag #TurnMontgomeryBlue.
The City of Montgomery will place blue ribbons in front of our healthcare facilities and senior living facilities in Montgomery. We will also light up City Hall and the Safety Center with blue lights. Montgomery City Council, city staff and the Montgomery Diversity and Inclusion Committee will be donating nearly 350 boxed lunches from Stone Creek Dining Company to employees at TriHealth Bethesda North Hospital, Meadowbrook Care Center, CareCore, Twin Lakes and Kroger as a small token of our sincere appreciation.
Help us say “thank you” to our local health care workers, restaurant workers and grocery store workers. Let’s #TurnMontgomeryBlue!
