Old Lyme Residents Asked to Paint Kindness Rocks

Kindness rocks!

OLD LYME — The Town of Old Lyme Kindness Committee is asking residents to consider painting kindness rocks with supportive sayings. The finished rocks can be dropped off in a box outside Memorial Town Hall (52 Lyme St.) any time. The rocks will be distributed to Meals on Wheels, the Lymes’ Senior Center, and the Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau.

“We want to provide the community with another positive outlet during this challenging time, while also spreading hope and encouragement to our vulnerable populations,” said Kindness Committe Chair Michelle Noehren. “Sometimes all it takes to turn someone’s day around is a small gesture of kindness, and we hope that providing these rocks to those who need support will help them through the harder days.”

Last month the Kindness Committee encouraged residents to submit videos thanking the administrators, teachers, and staff at Lyme-Old Lyme Schools for their hard work and dedication in helping students transition to distance learning. 

During each meeting of the committee since the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the state, members have been generating ideas about how to build community, support those who are struggling, and offer ways for residents to help.
