Rock Painting at Vauxhall Community Garden June 2019

The members of Golden Rule Lodge No 24 and Golden Rule Chapter No 50 invited Union Township Community Organization’s Daycare to participate in Rock painting on Thursday, June 27, 2019, at 2:45 pm. The weather was around 90 degree’s. The children were supplied with Paint Smocks, paint brushes, non-toxic paint and rocks from the Vauxhall Community Garden committee , the committee also provided Healthy juices, water and snacks for the children and teachers.

Golden Rule Lodge and Chapter had two volunteers from Vauxhall community, Mrs. Patricia Francis who provided a tour of our garden as well as Mrs. Margaret Christy who was accompanied by her two daughters and they  also contributed their rock art to the Garn.

Vauxhall Community Garden installed a Community Bulletin Board to keep the Vauxhall community informed of the availability of the garden vegetables as they are harvested.

We also plan to have a community day of Rock Painting in August 2019.
