I heard about a Courier Journal article the other day that sounded good for New Albany also. It said that Louisville was planning a day called "Love Louisville" where people did random good deeds for others. Most of these ideas were very simple and required little time and no money. They included taking out a neighbor's trash, giving a bottle of water to a runner in the park, doing yard work for a neighbor, hosting a free "yard sale", just to name a few.

This sounds like a wonderful idea to me. Maybe we can stop fighting for a minute and work together as a community. I know many organizations do a lot of community service and they are to be commended for that. But this is for everyone and does not require meeting at a designated area. All we have to do is one simple deed for someone else. New Albany, let's think about this please.
