As administrator for Orangevale Rocks, our local kindness rock group with a kindness rock garden at Pecan Park, you may have seen her at the Orangevale Farmer’s Market operating free kindness rock painting for children. They call her the “Rock Lady.” You may have seen some of her art around town, as she has donated her time to provide art work at The Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food Bank (the big rock) and a mural depicting our farming legacy on display at the former Orangevale Orchard on Filbert. In addition, Sheri has painted and updated some of the little libraries in our parks, particularly at the Orangevale Community Center, Orangevale Community Park and also, at Pecan Park. As part of that upgrade, Sheri started collecting children’s books in the Community and regularly upgrades the contents of the libraries with new books for everyone to read. Sheri loves Orangevale!
