Dino’s Lounge is planning a fun and uplifting New Year’s eve celebration with music from The Sun Messengers and the social media project Because I Said I Would.
Because I said I would is an international project to help people commit to promises they make. This year, they are erasing the notion of the quickly forgotten New Year’s resolution and replacing it with handwritten cards that make honest, simple promises to encourage people to keep their promises. Ferndale joins cities all over the world in this effort. Promises will be posted to the wall for the world to see and be inspired by.
Organizer Mindy Cupples hopes the event will inspire friends and neighbors to keep their promises, and to show the world how much love there is in the small Detroit suburb. “I’m hoping to make Ferndale a big part of this event. There are so many negative stories out there and I thought this might be a positive, hopeful and timely story,” she said.
