On a cloudy and cool Saturday morning last week, area residents were learning about bullying and suicide. There was lots of laughing and hugging. Awareness was taking place. The event was “Color For Kindness” organized by Connie Romanowski and Kevin’s Legacy Foundation, in honor of her son Kevin.
Hats off to the organizers, volunteers and participants of the event. The weather was not the best for being “colored” but funds were raised for an arts and crafts room in the Holmen Area Community Center to be named in Kevin’s memory and to assist students and adults interested in the fight for mental health and suicide prevention. The event organizers hope this will help people affected by bullying. If you missed it this year, come join the fun next year on the second weekend in October.
