Cherokee Village Rocks gears up for Rock Drop event

One of the local rock painting clubs, Cherokee Village Rocks got an early start to celebrating National Paint a Rock/Hide a Rock Day slated for July 24.

Members of the organization hosted a small event July 10 in conjunction with the Spring River Farmer’s Market in Cherokee Village.

According to founder Patricia Jones, the group strives to bring smiles to the faces of unsuspecting individuals who might find a rock hidden at any time.

Jones said the early start was to help generate interest.

“We want to encourage folks in the community to give it a try. It is a peaceful and fun activity that anyone can do,” Jones said.

The Cherokee Village group painted about 50 rocks to prepare for club’s Rock Drop.

“We will keep painting rocks to prepare for the Rock Drop. These rocks will be hidden around the community as part of the Kindness Rocks Project,” Jones said. “If you find one, upload it on Facebook to the Cherokee Village Rocks page and #Chervillerocks.”

Jones said whether rock painting, rock hiding or rock hunting, it is a fun activity for the whole family.

“The artists love to watch them travel to different locations. It’s a way to brighten someone’s day. Finder’s can keep it or re-hide it…their choice!” Jones said.

In addition to seeing photos of what has been found, Jones said the group would like to see rocks painted by others as well.
