Kindness rocks in Princeville

Last year, the Lillie M. Evans Library, the Princeville Civic Association, and Village Foods started a Kindness Rocks Garden in Princeville. Kindness Rocks projects have been springing up across the country to encourage, to inspire and to promote good will. The impetus around the project is that one message at just the right time can change your entire day, outlook, or life. 

We purchased a ton of rock and placed it in the long planter in front of Village Foods. The LME Library has been hosting rock painting sessions every month since October 2017.  Our next painting program is February 21 at 3 p.m.  We provide all the supplies; just bring your artistic talent! Participants can paint a positive message on a rock and hide it around Princeville.

Even if you don’t join us for a painting program, feel free to take a rock, paint a positive/inspirational message, return it to the rock garden or leave somewhere else to share some happiness. Please use hashtags: #WTPRocks & #LME on the rocks you paint and when posting to social media so we can follow your rock’s journey. Spread the kindness and inspire others, one rock at a time.

Children at the First Congregational Church of Toulon were eager to partake in the soup and sandwich meal after church services on Feb. 4. The “Souper Bowl” luncheon help to raise money for the church’s mission board.
