The Rosenbrocks asked friends and family to perform random acts of kindness in their daughter’s memory which ended up eliciting a response from all fifty states and thirteen countries. The Board discussed making a donation of their personal funds in Vivienne’s memory and also passed a resolution supporting the Town’s designation of January 16 as Random Acts of Kindness Day in Corinth.
Resolution #49 approved, declaring Village support of the January 16 Random Acts of Kindness Day in Corinth.
