A new trend 'Rocks' the city of Williston

By  | 

Williston Rocks is spreading kindness and cheer one stone at a time. The social media trend caught the attention to one Georgia mother which led her daughter to start the project in Williston.

"We started the page and once she got up here and actually started painting here and kind of getting me more hands on with it, I ended up sharing the group to Williston Connections and that's where it took off," says Natalie Williams, Williston Rocks Founder.

Inspirational quotes and kid-art designs are painted on the rocks. The project is also targeted to keep kids active and to showcase their creactivity.

"Getting to go out and hide the rocks or even get to painting what they want on the rocks, using their own creative side to paint whatever it is they like on these rocks," says Williams.

Colorful rocks are placed in various locations throughout the city. It's not too hard scouting for them, since hints are posted every day on facebook.

"A few people are throwing in the library and the train station and I heard Menards has come up a few times lately hiding outside of Menards and other business places," says Stephaney Basher, Williston Rocks Participant.

The buzz is sparking positive reviews on social media engaging both hiders and seekers.

"The kids get so excited adults get excited and it's just a good way for the community to get together and do something, the more people we get the more rocks there will be and more people involved," says Basher.

Williston Rocks is rocking everyone's mind here in the Boomtown. To learn more about Williston Rocks, you can visit their Facebook page by typing "Williston Rocks" in the search bar.
