Three neighbors and students at Accompsett Middle School – Alex Fisher, Cordelia Comando and James Martino – are doing their part to spread togetherness and joy in their community. They wanted to remind neighbors that they were all in this quarantine situation together so they asked them to tie a yellow ribbon around their trees out front. In their letter to neighbors the students wrote, “We think it would be so nice for all of us to be reminded that even in the worst of times, and when situations could otherwise divide us, we remain united. Feelings of togetherness and support for each other are really important in maintaining social connectedness.” The yellow ribbons also signify gratitude to all of the essential workers risking their health and keeping everyone all safe. The students are hoping the yellow ribbon campaign will become a townwide initiative.
