The Town of Cochrane is launching a new campaign to help the community share their gratitude.
#CochraneSaysThanks starts May 18 with a poster campaign so residents can thank each other, as well as local businesses and services. Special online gratitude sharing events are being scheduled to say thank you to the community for following COVID-19 response restrictions.
Cochrane Mayor Jeff Genung thinks there’s a lot to be thankful for.
“Since this situation started, I’ve been saying ‘Stay home, stay safe, save lives,’ and the response has been so positive,” he says. “Cochranites are creative and resilient. We have a lot to be grateful for — I can’t wait to see how everyone shows it.”
The #CochraneSaysThanks campaign runs for five weeks, ending with Good Neighbour Week June 13-19.
Residents, businesses and service providers are invited to decorate a poster and display it, as well as share a picture on social media with the #CochraneSaysThanks hashtag.
Local performers are being invited to participate with a 20 to 60-minute show or activity. To pitch your event or activity, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Town is releasing the schedule of free online #CochraneSaysThanks events in the coming days and weeks.
The poster is available for download now on cochrane.ca/COVID-19.
