The National Charity League's Ridgefield Chapter recently helped create an Inspirational Rock Garden at Danbury's very own Ann's Place. The 8th grade, class of 2025, spent time painting hundreds of rocks with inspiring messages, while designing a rock garden on the grounds of Ann's Place. The project was inspired by The grassroots kindness movement - The Art of Connecting. The Kindness Rock Project believes at just the right moment, one message can change someone's entire day, outlook or life.
“The NCL Ridgefield Chapter painted rocks with uplifting and inspirational messages for Ann’s Place. I have worked with the NCL for years, and I am truly amazed with the passion and commitment the mother/daughter teams bring every time they volunteer, and this day was no exception. After we took a tour, Tara and her daughters placed the rocks on the grounds of Ann’s Place with much enthusiasm and excitement. Seeing how much this project meant to them brought me such joy in the midst of these challenging times. This was a day of happiness, and we are truly grateful they chose Ann’s Place.” Lynn Stubbe, Ann’s Place
