UPDATE: Thanks to all who have submitted photos! New photos can still be included as part of the City’s online photo album.
The City of Temecula is creating an online photo album spotlighting groups of employees or citizens with “hearts” and big smiles promoting kindness in Temecula! Why? “Temecula has heart …Because Nice Matters!” Temeculans are busy creating a beautiful, vibrant community, and the people, businesses, organizations and families of Temecula are kind and considerate of others along their journey of success. So, we are proudly spotlighting the heart of Temecula – our people! Follow these steps to participate in the City’s Kind♥Happy♥Heart online photo album:
- Take a photo somewhere recognizably “Temecula” (or in front of your Temecula business sign or building to promote your business) with a group of kind-hearted people such as employees, students, citizens or other willing participants in Temecula, and smile or laugh (hugging is optional but encouraged).
- Include a heart or hearts in the photo! Here are a few ideas: hearts that are colored with markers on paper and held; pose with fingers/hands in a heart shape; print the “Temecula Has Heart …Because Nice Matters” logo and hold it; stand in front of City Hall’s heart; form a human heart (see https://www.facebook.com/cityoftemecula/posts/10153279858178287); PhotoShop a heart in your photo, or just include heart(s) in your own “kind-hearted” way!
- Email up to four Kind♥Happy♥Heart photos to TemeculaHasHeart@CityofTemecula.org
by May 11, 201. Deadline extended to May 21, 2015!!!
- Optional: Post your photos on social media with hashtag #TemeculaHasHeart.
Photos must be suitable for viewing by citizens of all ages. Slideshow will be played at public events and posted online.
