Looking for a way to celebrate the positive things during the time of COVID-19, a Watertown business has started a weekly feature focusing on a person, group or even a pet doing something great in town.
Ballroom in Boston will post the weekly honoree on its Facebook page as part of what co-owner Lilia Weisfeldt has dubbed “Watertown Wednesdays.”
“This idea occurred to me that I hear about lots of cool things people are doing around town, especially while we’re all stuck at home,” Weisfeldt said. “I thought we could all use some local positive info in our social media feeds and that this would be a great way to make that happen.”
The first week’s nominees are Allie and Kate Spillane, who provided a behind the scenes peek into the life of a kid during Coronavirus.
The submissions can include text, video, and/or photo. Whatever the person submitting thinks will convey their message best.
“I have heard about really interesting hobbies people have picked up, businesses coming up with innovative ways to serve clients through all of this, and cool connections made because people have the time to actually reach out and talk to someone,” Weisfeldt said. “It has also been fun to see the way communities have come together to keep each other sane – hearts/teddy bears in windows, chalk art, front step photography, neighborhood singing parties, etc.”
Here’s more information about how to make a nomination:
