Official "Light Monticello Blue for Essential Workers Day" Proclamation - City of Monticello Light Monticello Blue Printable Window Sign/Poster
On Monday, April 20th, Monticello Mayor Cathy Gross is announcing a proclamation asking all citizens to “Light Monticello Blue for Essential Workers.” Mayor Gross said, “The purpose of this proclamation is to honor and support essential workers that are risking their health during the COVID-19 Pandemic.” All essential workers are honored including the public safety & first responders, truck drivers, factory workers, postal/delivery personnel, and restaurant, grocery, retail and pharmacy workers.
Please demonstrate your support by “showing your blue” in your home, front yards, doorsteps, or businesses.
- Residents can use blue lights, ribbons, and holiday decorations.
- Children can make sidewalk chalk drawings or yard/window signs showing support.
- Encourage your family to have a ‘blue day’ and wear blue clothing, bandanas, or face paint.
- Everyone is also encouraged to post “Light It Blue” photos on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (with the hashtags #LightItBlue and #INThisTogether) to show online support of health care workers, first responders, and essential workers.
“Light Monticello Blue for Essential Workers” will continue from April 20th thru April 30th, 2020. As essential workers travel the community or drive to/from work our ‘Light It Blue’ moments are small ways in which we can thank and recognize them.
