The first in a series of messages dedicated to improving the community and assisting in developing a positive atmosphere for youth has a simple request – pay someone a compliment.

So are you in?

The message, part of an ongoing campaign, is designed to promote inquisitive thinking and encourage local residents and business owners to take an active role in creating a healthy, happy and engaged community.

"There will be several messages in the coming weeks, each which encourages people to think critically on how they can make a difference," said Kelly Leppard, youth prevention coordinator with STEPS, the Southington Town-wide Effort to Promote Success.

The message seen this week throughout the community is sponsored by STEPS. The picture shows Hometowne Realty, a company located near the Southington Town Green, but they are just one of many businesses and organizations to join in the campaign.

So have you given someone a compliment today? If you have, then you are in. Southington Patch and its staff certainly are. Keep an eye on Patch in the coming weeks as we look at each of the messages to come.

And be sure to tell us in the comments section below, what does the phrase "are you in?" mean to you?

For more on the campaign, take a look back at the April 29 article, "Bringing the Community Together – Are You In?"
