Several local residents participate in a group that paints rocks and then hides them around the area for others to find. According to the “Big Country ROCKS” Facebook page, the group aims to “spread happiness, love and inspiration through the simple gesture of painting rocks and ‘hiding’ them throughout the community for people to find. This is a community-building group meant to inspire creativity in all ages and bring kids/families back together again in a world gone completely wild.”
