C-K continuing to make miracles happen

Miracle workers from Chatham-Kent are stepping up to support the June 27th Miracle in Windsor-Essex and they need your help.

After completing the May 16th Miracle project, other communities in Ontario, and other parts of the country, are taking C-K’s lead and launching their own Miracle projects.

Just down the 401, Windsor-Essex has launched the June 27th Miracle, and volunteers from C-K are supporting every step of the way.

“Chatham-Kent has established themselves as innovators and have inspired other regions to come together and have each other’s back, it is so special to see the impact this initiative has had in Ontario and in Canada,” said James Rasmussen, part of the Miracle project organizing team, in a press release.

This weekend at St. Clair College, Thames Campus, organizers are hosting sign painting and art sessions where volunteers can help convert May 16th Miracle signage into June 27th Miracle signage.

The signs and artwork will be taken and distributed throughout Essex County to support the grassroots marketing needs for the June 27th Miracle.

One of the most inspiring aspects of the May 16th Miracle project was how so many residents contributed beautiful artwork that was displayed all over Chatham-Kent.

Brent Wilken, who was also on the organizing team for the Miracle project, feels this is the best way to show our support.

“We set an amazing historic example of unity as a community,” Wilken said in a media release.

“It was so heart-warming to see Chatham-Kent residents literally paint the community with togetherness during our Miracle project, we feel this is the best and most sincere way for this community to support Windsor Essex and show them the love.”

On Saturday and Sunday this weekend, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the area behind Thames Campus Arena, will be set up with signage to convert into June 27th Miracle signs.

Organizers say all Chatham-Kent residents are welcome to come and share in this feel good activity where residents will show just how big C-K
hearts are.

This will be a great activity for families and for anyone who wants to spend time outside and be creative, organizers added.

There will be some paint and supplies provided, but volunteers are encouraged, if they can, to bring any paint and supplies, and anything that can be made into a sign they might have laying around the house.
