The Orange Arts and Culture Council has partnered with Orange Community Services to create a Kindness Rock Garden. So put on your creative cap and join others in creating your own totally outstanding painted rock on Fridays, April 21 and 28 at 1 pm at Community Services on Orange Center Road at 1 pm. Start searching for that perfect rock, paint and brushes will be provided. There is no charge for participation.
Rocks can be painted with a favorite quote, one meaningful word or just a simple design, such as a flower or heart. Participants can be expert painters or just no-talented citizens who want to be part of what is fast becoming a National phenomenon.
Rocks are placed in a garden to inspire others. Participants are encouraged to join in the pursuit of inspiring others through random acts of kindness. Some people will place a rock in the garden; others will exchange their rock for another or simply take one that helps them get through a bad day.
Painted rocks will be placed in a garden near the entrance to the cafeteria at the Community Center. Dedication of the Kindness Rock Garden will take place on June 21 – Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
