Angels Camp Feels The Kindness.....Kindness Hero Essays Presented!~by Patrick Works

Angels Camp CA.....Angels Camp City Council Meeting Tonight at Bret Harte High School....Angels Camp Ca is a Kindness Zone! Kindness as a mission statement for Angels Camp, Calaveras County, local schools, and the entire community, was celebrated tonight, as the Angels Camp City Council gave up the first, and larger, part of it's agenda tonight to the kids; and to kindness......

Click Above For More Photos....ThePineTree.net has a video available of the kids' speeches here. Enjoy, as this is quite a SPECIAL eveningQ!



Local school children have been assigned to compose essays about those local figures they've found to be role models of kindness. Essays were gathered over the last few weeks, and tonight the essay contest winners were offered the floor at the Angels Camp City Council meeting to read their speeches, and present those "Kindness Heroes" to the public.

Brandon Butler-Starks, Tyson Davis, Kahale Warring, Neal Mcguire, Lindsey Michels, Amir Abusaidi, Katie-Lynn High, Alexis Longeway, Cody Lawrence, Haylee Maddeaux, and Adan Loomis all came forth, accompanied by their heroes, to give their tributes.

Kindness Heroes for the night were both young and old, and even included a hero dog!

Brandon started the night with a tribute to the Angels Camp Fire Department, and was soon followed by Tyson with his own presentation about "Black Jack" the Angels Camp firedog; an incredibly well behaved and beautiful dalmation, who managed the speeches and further agenda with the support of a huge number of doggie treats.

As the speeches went on we heard about sibling appreciation (Amir Abusaidi speaking of his older brother Arman), sporting appreciation (Katie-Lynn remembering all the sideline support on the playing field she's had from Felicia Montoya), and amidst so many wonderful recitations, we ended the night with Adan Loomis describing his rescue by the Loomis Family; represented here tonight by Joan Loomis.

It was a night of tears, laughter, applause, an incredibly huge crowd, and too many smiles to count.

The kindness overflowed. And then there was cake. It could not have been better.

In the crowd tonight, amongst so many, this reporter found Jim Bergantz, who offered this idea for the future of kindness here, and abroad:

"I don't see why this kindness thing can't go viral! Sharing kindness one person at a time truly changes lives one person at a time. The support from Angels Camp, the school district, all the schools individually, and back up to the support from Calaveras County should be a role model for other communities! Pick a person who's shown you how to be kind; model what they've done, and spread the word! Make a difference one person at a time. Make a difference one act of kindness at a time!"
