Madison’s Gratitude Trail allowing people to give thanks this summer

MADISON, Conn. (WTNH)–What are you grateful for? A blank postcard idea has turned into a major display in Madison. It’s called the Gratitude Trail.

Anne Kubitsky installed the final piece of the trail. She’s grateful to be re-installing it at Hammonasset Beach state park after it was taken down in mid-May following 15 complaints.

Kubitsky has now gotten the permits she didn’t know she needed before.

“I’m grateful that sometimes the universe forces us to do things we are too afraid to try ourselves,” one of the signs read.

The words of gratitude come form blank post cards she distributed around the state. The responses fill the trail.

The effort brought together Senator Ed Meyer of Guilford, and his longtime political rival, Cindy Cartier.

“It’s contagious,” Meyer said. “It’s catching on.”

Cartier is helping set up the “Look for the Good” non-profit.

“I hope that we can have a Gratitude Trial in every one of the fifty states,” Cartier said.

Kubitsky is grateful for the media exposure the trail has gotten, as well as its sponsors and volunteers.

“So many people came out of the woodwork to help install this that it went up in one day,” she said.

The display will stay up until September 5.
