Well, sometimes for me it’s exactly what I need to snap me out of a funk!
This Friday, October 5th marks the annual ”World Smile Day”, and what better way than to celebrate it in Worcester, the hometown of Harvey Ball, the creator of the “smiley face”.
Here’s what the City has planned:
Join the City of Worcester in celebrating World Smile Day® 2012, on Friday, October 5thon Worcester City Hall Plaza, 455 Main Street, Worcester. World Smile Day is held annually the first Friday of October to recognize Worcester native Harvey Ball’s iconic creation by doing acts of kindness and celebrating the day in a big way. Festivities willbegin at 11 a.m. and conclude by 1 p.m. The Shepard Hill Regional High School Marching Band will open the ceremony with a performance followed by the Worcester Seven Hills Charter School Chorus singing several Smiley, WSD, and Worcester related songs.
