Northeastern Minnesota Thanking Essential Workers with Project Blue Light
Northeastern Minnesota plans to take next week to thank essential workers for their service during the pandemic in a special way. Public health staff from 11 county and tribal public health departments in the Arrowhead region have organized an initiative called Project Blue Light.
From Jan. 24 to 31 across the region, they plan to light up landmarks, businesses, and even front porches with the color blue as an homage to frontline workers. They are also asking that businesses and schools encourage everyone to dress up in blue to show appreciation for those who have quietly helped during the pandemic.
They have also created the online hashtag #thankyouwithblue for anyone to find thank you messages and photos.
