A "Thank You Festival"

In a small California seaside village over 200 signs line the street that say Thank You and express gratitude for a plethora of reasons to celebrate, says the local newspaper.

 Grammar school students who attend the village's YMCA After-School Program, painted the signs that thank their grandparents, the library, volunteers, fire department, medical experts...you name it.  Slogans were created by students, as well.

'It’s the second year for a program designed to create an upbeat mood and atmosphere for those traveling along the town’s main drags...Participating youngsters not only hand-paint the signs, but also must give presentations on the concept at service organization meetings, all part of their 'service learning project' at the YMCA program," notes the news piece.
