The Raven Café in Downtown Port Huron is a big fan of the “Port Huron Michigan Rocks!” movement, and we’d like to help it along. This movement combines some awe-inspiring ideas:
  • Creativity & Art
  • Treasure Hunting
  • Being Outside
  • People Connecting
  • Family Fun
  • Kindness & Positivity

Who wouldn’t want to promote these things?

img_7345-2Living along the coast, there is no shortage of great rocks in our area, but if you’re short on time the Raven has some in their front foyer, free for the taking & complete with decoupaged tag.

To sweeten the deal, the Raven will be running a contest through the end of September. Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick up rocks from Raven foyer.
  2. Paint them! Leave the tag visible (we suggest putting a piece a tape over it before you begin painting).
  3. Photograph it when you hide it. Include picture of back (so we know it’s one of ours).
  4. Post on Facebook with hashtag #RavenCafeRocks (preferably the Port Huron Michigan Rocks! page)You can also post on Twitter @ravencafeph or Instagram @ravencafe_ph with #porthuronmichiganrocks as part of your caption.
  5. Submission deadline: September 30, 2017

Trophies and prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

“Most Artistic”
“Most Nerdy” (view trophy)
“Most Colorful”
“Most Adorable”
“Most Inspiring”
“Most Scary”

Trophy Rocks will be painted by local artist Jody Parmann (the gal writing this), along with a $10 gift card to Hobby Lobby (to buy more paints and brushes) and a $10 gift card to the Raven. Science has proved that caffeine and/or sugar promotes creativity. We read it on the internet, so it must be true.
Now if your wondering “what’s in it for Raven?” Beyond a little advertising for a business that likes to celebrate art and creativity, it’s all about the “ripple effect” (see GISHWHES). As members of this community, we want to be the proverbial pool where these pebbles are dropped.
Open to all ages (parents permitting). Winners announced October 1, 2017. Happy painting, Port Huron!
