Mystic River Celebration


At CACHE’s Mystic River Celebration, we invited the public to paint Kindness Rocks to share a message of friendship and peace.  We’ve sprinkled those rocks around the city, in parks and other public places, to spread those kind words with the community.  Keep your eyes open and if you find one, take a picture and post it online with the tag #CACHEkindness, and then keep it for yourself, share it with a friend, or leave it for someone else to find.
