Hopewell Industries spreads cheer

By Beth Scott beth @ coshoctoncountybeacon . com
COSHOCTON – People at Hopewell Industries took to the streets Friday , May 12 in hopes of brightening someone ’ s day . Scott Stagmyer was just one of the people going up and down Main Street hiding brightly-painted rocks that had been hand-painted at Hopewell Industries just last week .
“ I thought it would be a good idea to get involved in this ,” said Mary Robertson who is involved in Coshocton Ohio Rocks and also works at Hopewell Industries as one of the integration specialists . “ They ’ re going out in the fresh air and having fun making inspirational rocks and hiding them .”
The rocks had been washed , sprayed , and were ready to be painted by people at Hopewell Industries . Stagmyer said he enjoyed hiding the rocks and said , “ I hope to cheer them up ,” when someone finds a rock from Hopewell Industries .
They are also planning a trip out of town to hide the rocks . They hope that people will find them and post pictures to social media .
“ It ’ s a positive ,” said Robertson . “ There ’ s so much negative these days . We hope that when they find a rock that says Hope or Joy , that it spreads some joy . Maybe it will make them feel good that day .”
Stagmyer also reads to the children at Hopewell School and Head Start . He says he has fun reading to the kids .
So if you ’ re walking up and down Main Street and find a rock from Hopewell Industries , be sure to take a

They say time heals all sorrow and helps us to forget . But time so far has only proven how much we miss you yet . God gave us strength to face it and courage to bear the blow . What it meant to lose you , no one will ever know . Our hearts still ache with loneliness , our eyes shed many a tear . God knows how much we miss you as we end another year .
Love and miss you tremendously , Mom and Pops , Tonya , David & Family , and your little peanut , Tinley
