This is a special post for us! We’re highlighting how one of our own FreightCenter team member’s family is celebrating their graduating high school senior in a fun, cool way. Just like many other families, people are trying to find creative ways to celebrate milestones while social distancing. Events like birthdays, wedding and baby showers, graduation celebrations and more are being held virtually or in other innovative ways. Instead of gathering together to celebrate birthdays, people are taking to the streets and driving by friends and family members to wave and honk their car horns. Others are putting handmade congratulations signs in people’s yards to celebrate. Check out how one of our own FreightCenter team member’s family is celebrating and get some ideas for your next big event here.
Since schools across the nation are doing virtual classes, students and teachers are trying to make the best of this challenging situation. This is especially true for this year’s graduating high school seniors, who aren’t able to participate in typical senior year festivities.
One of our team members’ family was trying to think of ways to celebrate their daughter’s high school graduation, and they decided to do something extra special to show their pride. They turned their garage door into a giant poster to honor her and her accomplishments with photos of their daughter with her friends and family.
In addition, they included letters from some of her favorite teachers. They stated that their daughter worked so hard to maintain a high GPA during high school, and they wanted to do something special for her.
If you or your family has a big event coming up and you need ideas for ways to celebrate, consider getting extra creative for now until you can celebrate in person again. For example, if you have a bridal shower or baby shower coming up, consider doing a virtual shower over a group video chat platform like Zoom or Google Hangouts. Museums and art galleries are holding virtual tours allowing you to travel the world from your couch.
For any types of gift giving occasions, you could have a party in a box. Have friends and family contribute to the box with gifts, cards and fun decorations. Write fun memories in the cards to share virtually. Send the box to the recipient and have a virtual party for them.
Start planning the in-person party for later when things are back to normal, so you have something fun to look forward to as well.
At FreightCenter, we are proud of our team and how they continue to celebrate life’s big achievements in safe ways. We will continue to bring you the latest COVID-19 information and more feel good posts about the great things still happening.
