Hi Folks:

As you're surely all aware, the first Saturday in July every year is International Free Hugs Day. For the past several years Marcia and I have brought our Free Hugs posters out to the Homecoming Statue at Ship's Point to share hugs with both residents and vistors alike. We've hugged hundreds of people from over a dozen countries... so far!

Marcia and I will be out there on Friday, but unfortunately Marcia works Saturdays. So, I thought I'd open it to you instead. You can come as a photographer, a hugger, or both. All it takes is an open heart and a smile. We have two posters so you're welcome to borrow one of ours or you can make your own and bring it with you!

It can be a little scary at first, but it's a wonderful experience. Your life will never be the same. You can read more about our hugging adventures here:

Might even be fun.
