The Waterville Lions Club launched a community enhancement project in September with the goal of lifting spirits and inspiring others during this difficult time.

Called “Waterville Lions Rock,” club members gathered together and painted rocks with inspirational messages or smile inducing artwork. A message was written on the back of each rock, “Post a pic and rehide #watervillelionsrock”. Club members then placed the rocks throughout the community on nature trails, near public buildings and in other locations where the general public were sure to see them.

A Facebook page and Instagram account were created for Waterville Lions Rock where everyone can follow the adventures of each rock as they are found and rehidden. “We really wanted to do something for the community that stayed within the current guidelines and yet still helped people,” said Club President Jill Huard. “We hope these little rocks will provide inspiration to people as well as something fun for individuals and families.”

Currently there are nine rocks placed in the Waterville/Winslow/Fairfield area. The club intends to paint and place more rocks in the coming weeks.
