Friday is "We Are Evansville Community Pride Day", get your T-Shirts out

Today is "We Are Evansville Community Pride Day."

It's a campaign that was formed to combat a recent survey that labeled the city as one of the most miserable in the country.

We Are Evansville started as a class project at USI, but has since gained momentum. Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says students have sold more than 5,500 of the shirts.

Now they want you to get em' out.

To celebrate Community Pride Day, they want you to wear the shirts today. Then, come out and enjoy the riverfront for the city's 10th Annual Evening on the River.

The mayor and students are also inviting you to help out at tomorrow's Clean Evansville-- which will take place Downtown.

Afterwards, or if you can't make it to the clean-up event, they still want you to come out to the riverfront for a photo.

The mayor says promptly at 11:00 Saturday morning they want to have as many people there as possible.

If you have a "We Are Evansville" shirt they ask that you wear it.

If not, just show up in a bright colored shirt. 

You can by "We Are Evansville" shirts at the C.K. Newsome Center Downtown. Proceeds go to the Parks and Recreation Department.
