The Village Rocks Kindness

The Kindness Rocks Project is capturing the kindhearted spirit of The Village at Duxbury residents. The project is spearheaded locally by The Duxbury Senior Center and the center’s Activities Coordinator Andrea Brandeis. What is now a global movement began as a way for a Cape Cod woman to lift the spirits of others by leaving behind inspirational messages painted on rocks and stones she found along the beach. The goodwill messages on rocks painted by Village residents will be left at Blakeman’s Restaurant at Duxbury Beach for others to enjoy.
