Kindness forecasted for Lake Elmo in 2018


submitted image • The Lake Elmo Rotary Club plans to hand out “pass it forward” cards to residents to promote its Kindness Campaign. The back of the card has a quick response code that can be scanned by cell phones to see what acts of kindness have happened in the area. The back of the card also lists examples of random acts of kindness, such as paying for the order behind you in the drive-through, visiting someone in a nursing home who doesn’t often get visitors and leaving a book you’ve finished where someone else can have it.

Lake Elmo Mayor Mike Pearson recently declared 2018 as “Random Acts of Kindness Year” in the city.
