Join the Kindness Celebration!

In a world where you can be anything be kind!

A Kindness Celebration!

On Sunday, October 20, 2019, BOMA (Briarcliff Ossining Ministerial Association) will sponsor Red Shoes Sunday.  Red Shoes Sunday is an event that invites people from the area and really anywhere to celebrate and practice kindness.  There will be a 'celebration of kindness' gathering at the Scarborough Church at 4 pm on the 20th.  All participants are invited to do some random and creative act of kindness (look at 'get involved' above) the week before the 20th, and then on the 20th, come to the celebration.  All those participating will either bring, or be given, a Red Shoes card, where they write the particular act of kindness that they created.  At the celebration all those with a card will post it on the kindness wall.  Hopefully there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of these cards, and much kindness to be celebrated.  After the formal celebration, there will be a reception for all those attending so that we have a chance to mingle with people from the community.

This is meant to bring our communities together in a new way.  It is called Red Shoes Sunday because the day was started in honor of a member of the Scarborough Church who passed away three years ago.  His name is Bob Minzesheimer.  He used to wear red shoes quite often.  Converse.  He also was one of those gentle souls who loved this community and worked for this community and made it better in so many ways.  He was kind and lived kindness.  So a very good way to remember him is to wear red shoes and be kind.  We hope you will join us.

On that day, a collection will be taken to support the Ossining library that Bob loved and the Ossining Briarcliff Homeless Program.  Please join us on that Sunday and the days before.  Be kind, bring your noted kindness to be celebrated, and join together in our community, reaching out to one another, because as we all know, we need each other.
