A Day of Civility from Choose Civility Allegany

Join us to enjoy an interactive and fun way to celebrate each other and our community. While various events will be happening all month long, at Canal Place we will be joining the Allegany Library, Allegany Arts Council, the Cumberland Downtown Development Commission and others to celebrate civility on April 16. We will be creating chalk drawings down by the shops (follow the path from the pedestrian mall downtown) on the large concrete seating area by the basin.

Chalk It Up to Civility is part of the Choose Civility: Allegany County, a grassroots initiative to improve and enrich Allegany County by promoting civil conversation and kindness. The event will encourage children and adults to participate in “chalking” in designated areas of  downtown with inspiring messages, words of encouragement and kindness.

The goal is to provide opportunity for collaborative conversation in spite of difference, develop consensus in the place of division, and create connectedness in our community. The program will feature special guests and all supplies will be provided.

Enjoy your day but please be respectful of those that are still practicing social distancing or wearing a mask.  The public bathrooms by the shops will be open for use and to allow for frequent hand washing as well.
