Kids For Peace Joplin holds rock painting event for International Drop a Rock day

The free event was held by the Kids For Peace Joplin group at Parr Hill Park to get ready for the 4th annual International Drop a Rock day on July 3rd.

The 2019 theme for Drop a Rock day is Harmony.

It was originally created by Word Rocks Project to bring people from all over the world together.

Once the rocks are painted, they will be hidden for others to find. The rocks are intended to bring joy to whoever finds it.

“They’re trying to change the world, one rock at a time and that fits in right with us at Kids For Peace Joplin because were trying to uplift our world through love and action and this just goes right well with it” said Chapter leader, Laura Potts.
