m A4 SIDNEY HERALD. SUNDAY. MAY l2.20l9 YOUR NEWS A drop of kindness ripples through Sidney rrr AMY VENN Sidney Herald A display of pure kindness could be seen at area businesses Wednesday, particularly at Reynold’s, where a small group of homeschooled children gathered to spread some joy. “We wanted to do something nice and try to get others to do something nice,” said Heather Arneson, one of the parents overseeing the activities. The kids were equipped with suckers attached to small cards which stated, “Enjoy our act of kindness! A drop of kindness becomes a ripple which quickly becomes a wave! Keep the kindness ripple going and help create a wave! Have a great day!” The point of the message was simple: to pass on kindness. It was inspired by a social media post Arneson saw last year where children were taping quarters to washing machines with a note of kindness. She thought it would be a nice activity for the homeschooled group. AMY VENN.

Cooper Arneson, 2, was a designated sucker tester in his stroller. “It was a chance for the kids to talk to people and for people to interact with us,” Arneson said. “Many people don’t even know we have a decent sized homeschool population in the community.” Although it took the group a minute to find the way to approach people without them thinking they were being sold something, Johnson said it was a great experience for them all. “We succeeded, I’d say,” she said. “There were a lot of smiles.” Store-bought and homemade treats with notes were also available at other businesses, including Burger King, Johnson Hardware, Silver Junction Espresso and Nortana Grain in Lambert and Sidney. Arneson said they were thankful for the local support. Overall, 250 people received random acts of kindness on Wednesday. «4.. it} mints“ Spring Extr BY NICOLE LUCINA Sidney Herald The fifth annual Spring Extravaganza held at Savage school was a hiton Thursday night.
