MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (WPRI) – If you find yourself in Middletown this summer you might be lucky enough to find a little “hidden treasure” of sorts.
Sheri Arbige and her son Jaxon starting a game of hide and seek using seashells.
The Aquidneck shells colorfully hand-painted shells bringing uplifting messages of hope.
The shells placed around town at beaches, playgrounds, sidewalks and stores are stirring up a lot of attention.
Recently Sheri says local businesses are reaching out to her asking for a painted shell with their business’ name on it and a message offering a free item to whoever finds the shell and posts it on social media.
Sheri tells 12 News that the idea came from a friend and after word got out about it, it has recently taken off.
