Lucky Cat makes her governmental debut…

A few weeks ago, Lucky Cat matter-of-factly informed me that “if this happiness movement is to be successful it must be made official, even if only unofficially so.”          X-)

So the calls were made and the meetings were set. On July 17, 2010 we met with SWFL Mayor #1, Mr. John Sullivan of Cape Coral. We presented him with our happiness mission and proposed a new idea: a Department of Happiness! He loved it and together we made it unofficially official ~ SWFL now has a fully functioning Department of Happiness, with Lucky as Head Kitty and myself as… well, whatever she needs me to be!

And today, August 3, 2010, we inducted a new member into this very special Department… the City of Ft. Myers Mayor Mr. Randy Henderson! He too is an enthusiastic advocate for community happiness and we are very excited to have him on board. Even more exciting is his big idea for Lucky: for her to be featured in February’s Edison Festival of Lights Parade!!! (More on this soon.)

As this happiness mission gains strength and speed, Lucky & I would like to send a big thank you out to YOU. It is YOUR support and happy energy that’s propelling this project forward. As the artist behind this ambitiously innovative Work of Art, it is my goal that the success of Lucky Cat is synonymous with the success of ourselves as a community. She has the magic to introduce change, but it is US who have the power to move it forward and make it stick. Thank you!  =)
