Motorists were treated to a little bit of happiness at the corner of 12th Street and Commercial Avenue late this afternoon.
Anacortes Center for Happiness members wore yellow shirts and held signs with positive messages — “You Are Loved,” “You ARE a Good Parent!” and “Trust Yourself.”
“To spread a little happiness,” said Kari Bishay who held a sign that read “Yes and YAY!” “To give people something to smile about.”
Participants were inspired by an online photo of a similar event and decided to do their own “Happiness Sprinkling event,” Laura Lavigne said.
They chose to hold the event at 12th and Commercial, an intersection often used for contentious protests, “to heal the corner,” Lavigne said.
The happiness was spread from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. after the group had gathered at Causland Memorial Park to pick out a sign that spoke to them. All were printed and donated by Chris Terrell at How It Works.
