Boston, MA (11/16/18): Governor Charlie Baker will issue a proclamation naming Saturday, November 17, 2018 “Massachusetts Day of Civility.” The day, recommended by the National Civility Foundation, will be the third official day of its kind in the Commonwealth. According to Judith Bowman, Executive Director of the National Civility Foundation, the Proclamation will be read during Opening Ceremonies of The Thanksgiving Day Parade, Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Beasley Media Group Boston is pleased to be the official radio partner of the event.
“The purpose of designating Day of Civility,” Ms. Bowman said, “is to have every person in every family, every company … consciously perform a random act of kindness.” She went on to say, “Day of Civility is timely given our coarse global climate and particularly fitting as we enter the Thanksgiving holiday season.” Ms. Bowman goes on to say, “Thanksgiving is the time when families, friends, new friends and even random new people in our lives will come together and acknowledge those who have touched our lives and lifted our spirits by a thoughtful, simple random act of kindness.”
The National Civility Foundation Board is comprised in part by certified protocol professionals in the business etiquette and international protocol industry. These business leaders have come together to provide civility training and education to present and Next Generation leaders in Massachusetts and beyond.
