Kids shared creativity and positive messages June 7 in the form of rock painting at the Amherst Public Library. The event was organized by Northeast Ohio Rocks, a group started by an Alliance family that has hidden more than 200 decorated rocks across the area. Participants are encouraged to re-hide rocks when they are found and place freshly painted rocks in areas such as public parks.
