MEDINA – A new display of gratitude sends messages of thankfulness during a time when many people are feeling anxiety, loss and disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Takeform in Medina installed the display featuring a vintage photo of downtown Medina on Friday in Rotary Park at one of Medina’s main intersections.

The company had a booth during the Olde Tyme Christmas celebration on Nov. 27 and asked people what they are thankful for in their lives. Those quotes are part of a display that will be up until mid-January.

Many said family, and others included organ donors, deer season and even chocolate.

A sampling of some of the messages include:

“This Wonderful, Friendly Town of Medina”

“Things in Life Do Not Come In A Box”

“Thankful For My Mommy, Daddy And Two Babies”

“For A Healthy Family And The Wonderful Life”

“Snow Storms That Look Like Snow Globes”

“Mustang Pride”

“Open Your Heart To The Goodness Of The Holiday”

“My Family, Sheep & Goats”

“Medina, A Hallmark Hometown – We’re So Lucky”

“Stay Safe, Love Each Other”
