In collaboration, Matthews House Hospice and Museum on the Boyne are hosting the Compassion Rocks event during Hospice Palliative Care Week May 6 - 13, 2018.

On Friday, May 11 at 11 a.m., the community is invited to participate by painting rocks at the Museum on the Boyne.

This community outreach project is modeled after The Kindness Rocks Project and is designed to offer a simple way to educate and inspire community understanding of compassion in action.

It’s simple: Create a rock with your own message of compassionate courage, strength or care to inspire well-being in yourself, others and our community.

Take a rock, one you’ve created yourself or one you can find from the rock selection to inspire your own compassionate courage and strength.

Connect with others to inspire compassion by giving a rock to someone who needs it or leave it somewhere visible in the community to be found by someone in the travels of their day.

Located in Riverdale Park, the Museum on the Boyne features a 1914 Agricultural Fair Building, an 1865 log cabin and an 1858 barn. The museum houses a mixed collection of household, agricultural, industrial and archival artifacts that depict life in South Simcoe from settlement to present day.

Other features include educational programming for preschool, schools and homeschool, exhibits, summer camp, PA day programs, special events, outreach presentations and programs and a gift shop.
