ADAMS, Mass. — One or more anonymous residents decorated the town with hundreds of paper hearts on Valentine's Day.
"It put a big smile on my face and made me proud to be part of the Adams community," Town Administrator Jay Green said.
The hearts could be found on storefronts, municipal buildings, and other landmarks throughout town. The paper hearts were large and small and had positive messages written on them.
"It was most certainly uplifting. It's too easy to focus on the negative, but there are ample reasons to be positive," Green said. "We just need to make a concerted effort to see the positive, highlight it and work towards it. Sometimes it's the small things such as this which have a far greater positive impact."
Residents agreed and took to Facebook to share photos and their reactions to the hearts. Residents thanked the "love bombers" for their efforts.
Green said the town has no idea who placed the hearts.
"Despite my former law enforcement background, I exhausted my suspect list and I was unable to determine the identity, but it really doesn't matter," he said. "Just knowing that some folks cared enough to take the time to do this is enough satisfaction for me. To that person or those group of people, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
"It says that we are a community that cares; we care about our neighbors and our businesses. It says look at us; look at our town; look at who we are – we're Adams proud and it's a great place to be."
