A positive message has been appearing in Hamilton downtown planters and on lawns throughout the town. The simple blue sign reads, "Hope in Hamilton - Staying Strong." It's a little positive boost that has been prepared by the Soroptimists International of Hamilton. With all the other political signs, it's a nice message celebrating community, much like the Hamilton High School Class of 2020 support signs.

The local Soroptimists have, like many others, been meeting remotely on-line and are anxious to get back to their regular general membership luncheon meetings. They cancelled their "Evening Wrapped in Chocolate" earlier this spring. They want the community to maintain a positive attitude as we work our way through these unusual times.
