RARITAN, NJ - Raritan Borough is trying to bring residents together with two community projects.

The first is Rocks of Hope, with residents being asked to paint rocks for the community. Anyone interested is asked to paint some rocks with an inspirational message on it, and give it to their neighbors, friends and family and place them at one of the Raritan parks for others to enjoy.

Those participating are asked to take pictures of the work and send them to Lschulte@Raritan-nj.org to be posted online.
