A patriotic project has brightly painted wood pallets popping up all over Montville.
The project, titled Community Patriotic Pallet Painting, is organized by some local moms who are asking residents and businesses to display their red, white, and blue creations between Memorial Day and July 4th with pallets they are providing.
"It's pride of Montville really. Pride of America. Everyone getting together instead of negative news, just a fun community get together," said Sue Davieau-Patti, who is helping with the project. "We aren't going to have a 4th of July celebration in Montville, so we thought it'd be a great, fun activity for families and business -- for people to get together and celebrate."
Davieau-Patti collects the pallets and gets them to those interested. Roberta Ginsberg started a Facebook group and helps with promoting the project. The two have never actually met but have certainly created a trend together, with about 300 pallets underway.
"We are all about community and doing things in a happy and positive way, and if we can all be a little more positive in this crazy world, then we did a good thing," Ginsberg said.
The pallets are free and mostly donated by local businesses and companies.
