HEATHSVILLE—The Northumberland Department of Social Services (NDSS) recently decided to involve their community in a team-building event.
During a staff meeting, the employees painted rocks and placed them at numerous locations in Heathsville, reported director Jackie Clayton.
NDSS followed a national project which involves painting a positive, inspirational word on a rock and then leaving it somewhere for someone else to find and hopefully brighten their day, said Clayton.
“The staff is asking individuals who find one of our special painted rocks to please let us know,” said Clayton. “Take a picture of it and email it to our director at firstname.lastname@example.org, then hide it in a different location around town for the next person to enjoy,” said Clayton.
“If an individual finds a rock that they absolutely love and wants to keep it, we are asking that the individual paint a rock of their own to replace the one they are keeping. Please pay it forward.”
